I have asked my parents if I could get one more chicken. My mom said she was ok with it if my dad was ok with it. That made me happy, but there is only one problem. My dad is not ok with it. He said " we have enough animals! no more." We do have two chickens, a cat, and four fish. What should I do to convince him that I can take care of another chicken? any ideas?

...you could always go with chickens have a pecking order, and with as few as two chickens, the pecking order becomes very extreme. One very submissive individual, and one very dominant...when the top chicken has more than one underling to focus on, there is less fighting in general?

How old are your current chickens? At two years of age, egg production can slow, so adding a new young bird will help up egg production.

Yeah more eggs for sure haha :) try talking to him about how one more chicken really isn't that hard! Maybe help with some of the money for food (unless you already do that of course)!
