    1. take the number of chickens you have

    2. multiply that number by 2

    3. add 5

    4. multiply by 50

    5. if you already had a birthday this year add 1760, if you have not had a birthday yet add 1759

    6. subtract the 4 digit year you were born

    7. you should now have a 3 digit number

    8. the last 2 numbers are your age

    I must have done mine wrong, because mine was off by 50 years. [​IMG]

    DH always asks "how do you know if one is missing?"


    I always know - I know the chickens just don't know how many number-wise are out there.

    Me too! Hubby thinks it is funny that I can look and see one is missing, but I don't know how many we have.

    You don't have to know the number of birds...any number will do.
