How important do you think it is to have an even number of chicks in a small flock? I planned to have 4 chickens but ended up getting a 5th incase something happens to one (like it is a roo that I can't keep). Someone recently got me worried that they should always be kept in even numbers so that each one has a pal- is this true? Will one be left out or will they all just hang out together? Right now they seem very happy together (they are only 2 weeks old). My husband was upset when I came home with #5 and I just cant see bringing 'just one more' home. and there is still the possibility that at least 1 will be a rooster, right?
