    Quote:It's what we chicken owners do to make it seem we have less chickens than we actually have, so we can get more.

    IE: each breed is only 1 chicken, etc.

    I'd still have 9, because I have so many breeds. They say silkies don't count though [​IMG]

    I'm working on my chicken math also.

    4 chicks
    + 2 dogs
    = 4 dead chicks

    + 1 month
    + 4 more chicks
    - 1 dog (sent her to the pound for trying to eat my turtle, and she was the one that chomped my other chickies)
    - 2 roosters in freezer camp
    = 2 hens

    + 1 week
    + DIY incubator from an old cooler chest
    = setting eggs as soon as I get my temps stable!

    Now with an incubator at home, I think I'll start using the "x" function of chicken math.....

    1 incubator X 6 eggs, or should I make it 8 or 9, maybe just a cool dozen eggs. Maybe I could add another layer in my incubator and have TWO DOZEN..... Chicken math strikes again!
