Only if money is tight, winter coming, and the cost of living keeps rising...I just decreased down to 60 as of yesterday and still bummed about it...but I am looking forward to getting a couple shetland lambs to spin up their wool...and increasing the ameraucana's, the BLRW's and am finding the banties are the way to go if I could only figure which breed or breeds...when I get really old and can only have one flock...in another 50 years!
Added: and that doesn't count the geese I'll still have...
For me it's not the total number of chickens, it's the different age groups and types.
Right now we have 24 layers that are 16 months old, 17 layers that are 12 days old, 31 meat birds that are 3-1/2 weeks old, with another batch of 30 meat bird chicks coming this week.
The challenge is being able to keep them separate and happy. 'cuz eveyone here knows you need to kepp your chickies happy
