    Ahh chicken math. I was lucky as even though I hatch my own chicks I went to tractor supply today and sadly they were sold out of every thing but ducks so I just brought home some ducks lol. I am a chicken collector lol.

    That's why she sent you. She wanted more chicks too but you're the bad guy now. It is a good management plan to have a staggered flock so you have peak layers at all times. (Seriously!)
