so i am due to get three silkie chicks this weekend, unsexed (they are five weeks old). We can't have cockerels where we live due to crowing and don't need a bunch of little babies running around (although i would love to!), so it only makes sense to get three instead of two to have the greatest chance of getting females. my mom, however, insists on only getting two, saying that three is a lot different than two and i don't know what i am getting myself into (i have never had chickens before). what do you guys think? pros/cons of either? wouldn't they be more comfortable with three? i don't know what to do or how to convince her! HELP!
