    Welcome to the club..It's addictive.lol
    Before you know it you'll step outside and and ask yourself "how'd I end up with this many chickens". It happens to the best of us.
    Enjoy them, they can be pretty fun.....The chickens AND the folks here at BYC. ;)

    I honestly have no idea how many adults I have. I get 12 to 15 eggs a day average pluse 6 roos,for now. 2 will be going in the freezer. And about 25 chicks, half are 4 months old or so, and 5 turkey chicks same age as the older chicks. Plus two hens setting and 2goose eggs in the incubator.
    Yep, it's addictive!
