    I have TOO MANY! 41 to be exact! And they are a mixed lot, 6 very old RIR's, 3 Leghorns, 7 Silkies, 6 EE's, 1 Polish, 1 unidentified bantam, 2 Frizzles, 3 BO's, 1 possible BA mix hen, 4 younger RIR's, 2 Cochin bantams, 2 SLW's, and 3 BR's--all hens, I think. I have included my 10 chicks--5 and 7 weeks old--in this count. Whew--that's it! [​IMG] Genie

    P.S. There are actually 2 more chicks that were just hatched by my broody BO but we're giving them back to the person that gave us the fertile eggs, so they aren't included in the count.

    I'm at 40 right at the moment, but only 24 keepers, the rest are chicks that will be sold. Will have one more keeper in a couple of weeks (my new buff silkie) and will have many of the chicks sold by then too.
