Please see our updated thread here:

https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/818673/official-byc-poll-how-many-chickens-do-you-have-how-many-chickens-on-byc








We've had a lot of fun totaling up how many chickens are on BYC: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/220459/how-many-chickens-do-we-all-have-60-083-and-counting

The problem, it's really hard to go through that thread and find out how many peeps most peeps have.
So, we thought it would be fun to start an official poll to really gather this interesting information.

This should be fun!

16 chickens (and 4 ducks). I sold quite a few roosters and hens in July to keep expenses manageable. Awfully quiet around here!

I had to guesstimate as I have some hatching out today
I have 55 I can officially count and 20ish in the bator!! Some will be rehomed this next week, but I want to maintain about 50.

at present 42...

But I need to rehome or sell

3 roos

2 RIR pullets

1 or 2 GC Maran pullets

2-4 Wheaten Ameraucana pullets

So what, that would get me down to almost 30?

We have about 70 right now, with about 60 eggs in the 'bator. We are selling approx 30 chicks and hens next week at Chickenstock in NY.


It still amazes me how we went from 5 to 70 so fast!

At present - 13 hens in the adult coop, 11 juvenile layers, 6 CX pullets, plus an adult roo and 3 cockerels that all think my bedroom window sill is the best place to do their morning crowing.
So, 34 chickens total.
