Chicken Math Refresher

I heard that the local feed and seed had Silver Laced Wyandotte chicks in. Excited about adding a couple to the flock, we went for a visit. Somehow a pair of Wynadotte’s turned into:

  • two Silver Laced Wyandottes
  • two Rhode Island Reds
  • two Delawares

How did that happen? One plus one equals 6.

Can you say chicken coop expansion?
