Doesn't farmer Donald have anything better to do than counting ants and mice? Like perhaps getting a cat?

but you only asked for "How many CHICKENS are there?" so why does the ants & whatever matter????

Weak teaser. Anybody who set this up as an algebra problem wasted their time:

1806 / (2 + 4*4 + 4*10*6) = 1806/258 = 7

1806 / (2 + 4*4 + 4*10*6) = 1806/258 = 7
