"Too many?". What is this thing of which you speak?
:lau

Actually,too many is when you cannot care for them adequately, either due to feed costs or not enough space, or injuries and illnesses ignored. Or all of those negative aspects.

If those aren't in play, then you're okay. :)

I did nearly the same thing... I bought and bought and bought till I had nearly 40 birds! My DH said that is it no more chickens!!!!!!!! After a while of cleaning the brooders and moving them into larger brooders and more brooders and then into an out pen I finaly agree! No more chickens for awhile anyways!
