Chicken Math comes to the Hedgerow

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by Rachel'sFlock, Mar 4, 2011.

  1. My 6, 11 month old Australorp hens are soon to be joined by the product of our first chicken math. 7 straight run BA peeps will be arriving on the 16th. They are going to brood with the neighbors dozen-plus (as my broody isn't just now). We are hoping for a beautiful Roo, so our next chicken math solution comes from sitting a nice fertilized clutch under AliceAnn, my broody extrordinaire! Plus a few back-up layers, when my current flock molts all at once come Autumn.
    Happy Impending Spring Chicken Math!!!

    Brightest Blessings

    I LOVE chicken math, it is the only math I am good at. I have it down to a science too. I went to pick up one dozen meaties at TSC and that is exactly what I came home with, PLUS the silkies I could not part with and somehow 7 plus 7 sounds much better than 6 plus 6. So, 14 meaties and 3 silkies. See, it adds up perfectly.
