    Last year I bought 12 day-old pullets, and got 17 due to extras.

    I ended up with 7 due to naughty dogs. [​IMG]

    I got a cochin cockeral and pullet this winter. = 9

    + 14 babies hatched this spring [​IMG]
    + 8 babies hatched under my Broody [​IMG]
    + 4 babies hatched last week [​IMG]


    = 35 chickens and chicks! In one year. And I am filling the bator as we speak...

    And to think, when I started, all I wanted was 12!! [​IMG]

    But according to chicken math (when over 10 you add the numbers together), 35=8, so you still need more chickens to equal 12
