I didn't know exactly where to post this question, but I was wondering how many chicks most people started off with? I got 2 chicks at Easter (this year) and immediately put in my order for 25 pullets. I then decided to get a roo....26. The hatchery sent me a bonus chick...27 for a grand total of 29 chickens. I am completely new to chickens and so far I am loving every minute of it, but I was wondering if I started off a big large for my first flock? It seems when I see signatures of other people, they only have a few birds....maybe just me being curious.
