Chickies! How 3 turns into 18 and then some

So we got sucked in...became subject to what the backyard enthusiasts call "chicken math" .  Our story goes somethin like this. I went to the feed store with the intentions of buying 3 chicks. One for each of the kids. We got to the feed store and saw they had 5 different breeds. I told James to pick what he wanted. We then went inside got the food and water containers, the heat lamp and walked to the counter. Some time between walking into the store and getting to the counter I lost my sanity and all gumption and logical thinking. The nice gentleman asked what else I needed, I said chick starter and some chicks. He pleasantly asked "how many?" I answered "10."  I  paid the man and we went outside to pick our chicks.

What THE HECK! !#@*&#@^$ what was I thinking? Where did 10 come from? How had I lost my sane number of 3 that I had in mind while driving to the store, getting out of my car and looking at chicks, all the way up to actually saying how many I wanted. Oh well they were cute so I guess it's all good. So 3 turned into 10.
So while sitting at the dinner table, Daddy Digs said well where are MY chickens? Dumb founded I asked him what he wanted, white Cochin was his answer. So for his birthday I ordered him two white Cochin chickens. The catch? there is a 4 chick minimum. So now I had to get two more at least. I chose two different breeds, and then I didn't want those other two to be alone so I ordered two more. So now my 3 is 16. My six new babies should hatch today and be here by Wednesday.

THEN James wanted two silkie chickens. They are cool lookin, they remind me of a wookie.
So 3 becomes 18. Now my friend had an incubator. BWAHAHA! I decided that wed do a life science project and hatch some eggs. We'll document the growth, diagram eggs  and all that jazz. I found someone local and she is selling me 24 Cochin eggs, and one selling me 6 Americauna eggs.  If all those hatch my 3 will become 48. That my friends is what you call "chicken math". I will update our 21 day adventure when it starts.
Ansel is just having loads of fun though with these babies. Oh and we still have to build the coop!
