    I started off with 3, the legal amount, but then I really wanted a Buff Brahma and had room in my coop and after that Easter Eggers looked so cute..

    Needless to say I went from 3 to 7 and I'm over twice the legal amount at this point.

    You have failed at chicken math. You need a refresher course. You actually only have the three......the others cannot exist therefore they aren't really there and so there are only the three...you see?

    I thought those extra three were your neighbors'. They got out of her coop, and you are holding them until she repairs it.

    Chicken Math: The EErs are all the same breed, so they exist as 1 chicken. The Buff Brahma hasn't really settled in, so she's only a half chicken. And you always round down.
