Well after the rescue of my neighbors chickens (total count was 40 for anyone who remembers), I managed to rehome about half of that flock. My own personal/keeper flock at the moment has been dropped to 67 from 99 after the extras left from the rescue. So... 99-67=32 birds gone. I decided I wanted to order a few chicks from Ideals special order going on this month. Their minimum order is 25. I ordered 35. Oh, and I addd 5 keets for my mother. 99-32+40=99. Am I right? My mother is going to fall over if I'm at work and she has to pick the chicks up for me. Man, chicken math at it's best. XD... Now to hastily put together another coop before they're big enough to go outside. Roughly 8 weeks from their arrival date, eta 8/4 so that gives me until winter to get a coop together large enoug for 40 head of birds. fwew. I have all the lumber I'll just need the wire. My birds free range almost all day anyways so my run doesn't have to be anything spectacular, just some t posts and wire. Fwew. chicken math says I shouldn't have to build another coop, cause I'll have the same amount of birds. Kate math says it's just an excuse to build another coop!
