    I love chicken math !!! As of 7 pm today I will have 15 chickens but...

    3 are White Leghorn Roos but do not count since I am going to eat them

    2 Are chicks ( 1 welsummer and 1 Black Australorp) so they do not count

    2 Are EE roos that I am getting today so they will be in quarintine so they do not count

    1 is a Cochin Roo that I got on impulse as a pet so he does not count

    so In reality I have only 7 chickens but wait!!

    Of those there are 2 Roos

    1 Mutt and 1 Lav Silkie they do not lay eggs so they do not count

    I have 1 silkie/australorp mix that is not producing eggs so she does not count

    I have 3 silkie hens of whom only 1 is producing eggs at the moment so ..

    I have the grand total of only 2 chickens that count!!!!!

    THis was HILARIOUS! I understand chicken math now! Let's see if I can get this right....

    I have 3 hens...

    My Australorp is not laying yet so she doesn't count.
    My EE Didn't lay today so she doesn't count.
    My BO is the only one who laid today, so..............

    I ONLY HAVE ONE CHICKEN!!! Right???

    It is most important to remind anyone else looking at the flock, and not seeing it quite the way you do, that it is actually very difficult to accurately count chickens, and often appears to be more than there really are, and that it takes a highly experienced person (you-) to count, and your count is final.

    So yes, you only have one hen, today.
