    I'm getting 34 chickens. I'm getting 12 geese. How many ducks should I get? I was thinking 24. Should it be lower or higher.

    Hmm, why not 25 and get a better deal from the hatchery? I think it depends on how much space you have.

    Well 25 would hurt nothing. The problem is the minimum order on Muscovies.
