    Hey guys do you think there is a big difference in having 5 hens over 4? I live in a suburb so we didn't really want more than 4 because of the size of our yard & of course the noise factor. We already have two geese that are our pets & the chinese is loud enough. I don't want to push my neighbors over the edge but Its really hard deciding which chick to eliminate. EE , Partridge Rock or the red sex link. Any help or experience would be great. Thanks

    Hi and :welcome from Ohio. So glad you joined. One more isn't going to make any difference, just be careful that's how chicken math begins. :thumbsup
