My chicken math for the last 2 years... 6 - 2 + 2 + 4 - 4 + 3 - 2 + 2 + 2 - 2 + 8 - 8 + 1 + 1 + 4 - 3 + 10 - 6 - 2 + 22 - 22 + 3 + 13 - 7 = 23, which means I'm forgetting 4 somewhere because I have 19 right now.
Husband hasn't disowned me yet because there are - signs in there. Sold the ducks yesterday, to a gentleman that bought my Serama. Oh! There's the other 4! - 4 Serama. He has many more birds than I do, even though his focus is his fiber farm. He said "I should be selling instead of buying" and I replied "Yes, but as you buy better birds, you then can decide which of the lessor quality birds to sell, but you can't sell until you know what you're keeping"
I was fine until 2 girls went broody. I gave them all duck eggs. Felt bad for the chicken. Gave her eggs to the broody duck. Went to buy 6 chicken chicks, will need new layers next year anyways. I came home with 10 plus 3 Turkeys. Then decided I liked Turkeys better than ducks, so I sold the ducks after her babies were a week old. That was sad, but those Turkeys are something else!
I didn't complicate the math with all the hatching eggs, only counted resulting birds. LOL
Soon I'll be selling 5, a trio of Naked Necks, and 2 EE cockerels. Need to see gender on Turkeys before making a decision there. No new birds for awhile, need to get the young ones integrated. Only gave the broody 5 of the 10.
