    i was thinking about adding 3 more chickens to my flock of 5 hens that i have now but ive heard people on the site say u gota quarintine ur new birds for at least a month but what if u wanna buy pullets do u gota quarintine them too? or can u just throw,em in with with ur original flock? will older hens get along with new pullets if u bring a few home or will the hens tear into the pullets? does it matter how old the pullets are? do pullets carry deasies too or no plus can pullets eat layer mash feed like my hen
