Two or three would be fine SweetPea - there are local rescue groups who can tell you all about it and what you would need, and also provide the hens. A friend has had a couple of batches, they look pretty awful when they first arrive but soon grow new feathers and look the picture of health.
You will need secure fox-proof housing!!! Wherever you live!!!
