    I dont know how many chicken I have. IIRC I bought 6 bantams 6 meaties and 4 straight runs. I later got 25. I went a head and ate 2. A month later I got 3 silkies, 2 peachicks, 2 turkeys, and 2 mutt chicks and 4 ducks. The peachicks and one turkey died. I killed one rooster I bought 20 more chicks the other day. One of them died. I lost a silkie in a storm two weeks back. Ive got 19 chicks in the holding pen but i counted 37 in the coop which included my one turkey and one duck. ive got 2 ducks that didnt come back to the coop tonight. I did sell 4 chickens the other day. and gave a way a duck. Ahh shoot i forgot I traded 2 tetra tents for 2 rooster and picked up 2 more roosters a couple weeks after that(one of them is the one i killed)
