Well, everyones definition is slightly different, but here's my personal chicken math story: You go to the local feedstore as a newbie saying, I'll get a few cute chicks and have some nice eggs for the family. So, you buy 4, because that's really enough! Then you go back to the feedstore, and the bins are just full of different kinds of adorable peeps, and because you only have 4, a couple more can't hurt. Fast forward one short year: One day you realize you have 3 Coops and 3 runs outside, Chickens in a rabbit hutch under the porch, 2 coops and 3 brooders in your house, an incubator in your bedroom with your 6th hatch of the year inside, and you lost count of how many chickens you have around 10 months ago. Chicken Math!
