We bought 8 baby chicks the last night….the beginning of recovering a flock after various predators laid waste to most of our existing flock.
Here’s a guy who has 1,000 chickens.
That’s a lot more than 8.
But….if we let our new chickens hatch out some more baby chicks (when they’re appropriately mature, of course) we might be able to have a thousand chickens running around our yard!
That might be inappropriate for our lifestyle.
Sometimes you need to know when to quit.
