    Hi there! I just wanted to introduce myself. I joined back in April 2014 when I got my first chicks. This site has been a life saver for me!

    Thank you for all the friendly info!!!

    I definitely have the chicken math disease! :) I planed on having 3 or 4 hens .... Ahhh I have 14 hens and 2 roosters and I have plans for more in the spring! ?how did that happen?

    I have 7 Marans, 4 Easter eggers, and 2 Wyandotts. I enjoy my chickens so much!!!

    I also have 9 dogs, 2 barn cats a llama and 8 sheep.

    That is called "chicken math." Actually I think chickens are planning to take over the world, one coop at a time. I'm sure there are a lot more chickens, than people, in this world.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    It is SO easy to become addicted to chickens!! I never thought it would happen to me, but there is no stopping this disease once you contract it! [​IMG]

    Enjoy your lovely flock and welcome to ours!

    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. Very few BYC members are immune to chicken math. :eek:) When you get more chickens, make sure that they are all hens. The recommended ration of roosters to hens is 1 rooster for every 10 hens. As they mature, too many roosters will become very hard physically on your hens; over-breeding them, biting and plucking the feathers from their necks and backs, battering them, and potentially, seriously injuring them. With your current 1 rooster to 7 hen ratio, you are pushing the limits of safety for your hens. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your flock.
