Would it be unreasonable to start with 12 chickens? We have 8 new chicks ( first time chicken people) that came this week, and I am kicking myslef for not getting barred and jersey giants. Is 12 too much to take on? I am thinking of running over to TSC and picking up a few more while they are all still young. I think 12 is not that much more than 8. And I promised myself I would stop at 12. Even if they are more RIRs.
