Aww, he's no fun! That's how I ended up with 41 hens instead of 40 even. I got an extra Dorking because I wanted one so bad and didn't want something to happen to her if I only got one. No regrets, I absolutely adore my Dorking girls.
How big is your coop? Maybe if you have just one extra, it wouldn't be that big of a deal..? Enable, enable, enable.
The coop is 8x4, the run is 6x6. We have two guineas out there, otherwise I could probably get by with 3 more chickens. And maybe the guineas will fly off, who knows. For now they think they are chickens and they go everywhere the chickens do.
I got bantams this year, but now that I'm interested in adding some LF I'd hate to crowd them. The birds have to timeshare the yard with two dogs and when they are cooped, they all seem to hang out in the run together.
