Lesson 2: Addition: If you add one, you will definitely add another, so no one is "lonely"
Lesson 3: Division: No matter your best intentions, you will need to divide your chickies into more individual groups than you originally anticipated, which won't work, so see Lesson #4 Multiplication
Lesson 4: Multiplication: Coops and brooders must multiply by 3, every 6 months.
Lesson 5: Algebra: X number of chickens will always produce Y number of chickens, of which Z amount will actually be claimed as "real" "countable" chickens.
Lesson 6: Calculus: If Z amount of chickens are not actual chickens, and only Y can equal Z, then R must equal two times S, which means A is less than B, ...and if A is less than B, then you still have room for more before you are considered a hoarder!!
I got that from SunnyCalifornia on Backyard Chickens.
With that said, get ready for some total cuteness! The following are the breeds, not their names. I'm not sure these gal's are going to have names, trying to not make 'pets' out of them. Just too upsetting if something happens to them....
