This is a semi-serious question. I'm going to my favorite fair this weekend and I don't want to overstock since winter is coming up. I have one chicken coop (eight chicken capacity), one chicken tractor (six chicken capacity) and two kennels which could easily be enclosed as housing for about twelve chickens total - all empty. Everything but the coop is mobile and we have a 1/4 acre of hay to put everyone else on until the first snow. We can't free range because of a major predator problem but I think that between the tractors, coop and enclosed kennels and some extra attention, we could manage and everyone would be happy and healthy. What would you do? Stock all of the living spaces? Leave a few for emergencies? I don't even know what those emergencies might be but maybe there would be one.
