"Birds of a feather flock together." But does anyone have just one chicken? I originally wanted one... then we decided on two so they can keep each other warm in the dead of winter... now my DH is saying three "in case something happens to one" (my reply to his statement is we are going to end with with the full three count for the rest of their natural lives). So is just one okay? Or do they really truly need each other's company?
