(I'm new at this and want to make sure I have my chicken math right.) I got a call yesterday~ our feed store is getting golden and silver laced polish pullets in on the 2nd and wanted to know if i wanted to put some on hold! OMG! YES! Ive been wanting a polish for so long and they were so back ordered here i had given up.. Anyway, obviously we will have to get two pullets so they can be friends and not feel like outcasts because of their funny hairdoos and really, two would integrate better than one with our other 5 standard pullets (who are 8 weeks old) who may gang up on the newcomer.... However, my roommate says 7 chickens would be too many eggs for three people even if we are selling them and be too hard on the lawn... my response~ 7? hahaha no... we would really only have 6 chickens because 2 polish hens = 1 large fowl right? Here is the supporting information: polish hens weigh 4.5lbs, are not good foragers and aren't super strong egg layers.... therefore, two polish hens would have a combined weight of 9lbs (less than a jersey giant and would have the combined egg laying and combined impact on the yard of say... one foraging LF! y viola! "6" hens. What do you think?
