    Went to the poultry swap. I bought a 7 week old silkie, a seabright (?) bantam, 2 6 month old RIR's and a frizzle chick.

    The silkie doesn't count, because it looks like a tiny Teddy bear.
    The bantam and frizzle each count as half a chicken.
    My kid wanted the RIR's. Any chicken purchased especially for a child counts as half a chicken

    2 chickens gained.

    So, my five BO were bought for my five year old. That means I only have two and a half, and the half chicken isn't getting her feathers or tail like her sisters so maybe only 2 if she ends up as a he. It's pretty ridiculous to only have 2 chickens right? So when the lady I got them from gets her BR chicks next week I better go pick up some company for my chicks lol. Thanks for the lesson in chicken math!
