    just wondering about how many chickens everyone has currently. either your total number (no chicken math [​IMG]) or your regular chickens (includes bantams), meat birds, chicks, and eggs in bator. i've got 25 week old chicks. plan to keep 2 maybe 3 roos the rest go to freezer camp, keeping the pullets for eggs.

    5 City Chics, RIR (Anne Shirley), BPR (Emelyne), Australorp (Marilla), Araucuna (Diana), & Pearl White Leghorn (Rachael). I would like 5 more but I have to remodel my coop a bit. Our city only allows 10 chickens and no roosters. (So I will never have Gilbert).
