There would be no chickens left, because when they saw the fox kill other chickens they would all run away. So the farmer would have zero chickens left.

He would still have 16 chickens but, some of them would be dead though.

at first i thouht dat da farmer only had 10 chickens left but wen i read the teasr properly i saw it said all BUT six of his chickens. And i would also like 2 say 1 more fing. why is it dat almost every1 always says 'easy' or 'cant u fink of a better one'. i aint gonna lie, even i've said it once or twice but u lot r havin a laugh! everytime i read da comments all im seein is 'eazy' or 'yawn' or 'even my 3 yr old got dis'. if u want a harder 1 go to a harder rated teaser and stop picking on people. n e way, i thought it woz a good teaser and n e 1 who says differently r just hatin!

easy, but you had to understand the context in which it was written, some people have trouble with wording, giv em a break people, and i don't mean physically!!!

Jacob and Clarkone68 could be right. I think this teaser is a little ambiguous.
