We have lots of chickens, pigeons and several peafowl freeranging on our land (wild woods and meadows) and they all choose to hang out together during the day but sleep separately at night. It's a bit wild and woolly round our way so we sustain plenty of losses to predators and disease but try as we might we can't control and restrict any of them without making them utterly miserable. We've had a dire year with our peafowl and are down to just two males. We have found a pair of females to buy but do we need to quarantine them when they arrive? Various of the birds of all species have come down with coccidiosis and blackhead in the past year so it seems to be latent in our soil - we're just vigilant about early treatment now. Does this mean that there's no point in isolating new arrivals for a long period? We guess keeping them in for a little while is important for them to get used to their new home but aren't for how long. Is there a risk of them transmitting Marek's? That's the only thing I'm really worried about with our birds. Thank you in advance for your advice!
