I used to be able to calculate my totals that way, but these days, the only thing I know for sure is that I have three ducks. Chickens? Quail? Um... let me get back to you on that.'Probab
'Probably more than two!' I love that!
I usually end up saying "Hang on, I know how many of each breed I have... That's Pumpkin and Sissy and Jane... Marla, Darlin, Oswald-..." (It goes on!)
I can only dream of having the housing for that many birds. My cap right now is about 75 to 80 birds; past that, even my second-tier housing is terribly cramped. I have some plans for new pens, but until then, I am limited in my capacity.When I had 7 buildings of chickens and someone would ask how many I had, it took a while to do the math. I want to get back there again but I'm dismantiling a grow out building and replacing it with two 3 unit breeding houses. My old breeding complex it currently unused as I have to repair some serious security issues.
I only have two buiildings housing birds now and I still don't know an exact number. What adds to the confusion is that about 5 of them have started sleeping in trees and i found a hen on a nest under some mowing equipment.
