I’m leaning toward 4; those of the man and wife. That’s my final answer.

14 if you count only humans and the chickens 10 talons/claws, 12 if count only humans and horses hoofes; 22 if you count all points of all animals that touch the ground while walking.

• Crabman, you are today’s winner!
Just four. His wife has two feet, he has two feet, each chicken has two claws, each horse has four hoofs.

4, the farmer and the wife alone have feet.

22 feet

• Just one has me stumped, I won’t guess it quite yet, going to give it a little more time. If the meantime let me share a riddle about the Fox and the goose, its a classic one, let me know if you figure it out: Fox And Goose

• Chriss

I say 10 because chicken has feet horses have hooves and the wife doesn’t lives in a farm she lives in a house

• brandon evans

22 feet

• jordyn

it’s none, the farmer and the wife don’t live in a farm, they live in their house. and chickens and horses don’t have feet, they have claws and hooves. so the answer is 0/none

• Glenn

4 feet, chickens have claws and horses have hoofs, the farmer has 2 and his wife has 2. 2+2=4

• 5 chickens = 5 X 2 = 10 (Chickens do have feet)
2 horses = 4×2 = 8 (horses hoofs are called feet as well)
2 people = 2 x 2 = 4 (Farmer’s wife plus the farmer.

total is 22
