Candy: I've read the books and done the research. I really want some chickens.
Stephen: Okay. We'll need a coop.
Candy: Eight is a good number. Let's get eight.
Stephen: Better get a dozen, in case we loose a few.
Candy: A dozen chicks.
Mark from the Farm Store: You might want to get 16, in case you loose a few.
Candy: I ordered sixteen.
Stephen: Okay. We'll need a bigger coop.

Candy: Here to get our sixteen chickens! Are you sure we can do this?
Mark: You'll do great. Is it alright if I let the kids pick out one each of their very own?
Candy: We've got nineteen day old chicks.
Thankfully, we not lost a few. We've not lost any. Which means we currently have 19, week old, baby chickens. Which means we could be looking at a possible 70+ eggs a week if the girls decide to rock our world. Nineteen. That's how many chicks.
