Buying Chickens

You must buy 100 chickens for exactly $100, and purchase at least one chicken from each store. The first store charges 5 cents/chicken, the second charges $1/chicken and the third charges $5/chicken. How many chickens should you buy from each store?

80 from store 1 = $4
1 from store 2 = $1
19 from store 3 = $95

none of the above. Buy all your chickens from the store selling them at 15 cents and resell them to the store selling chickens at $5 a head. Reap the profits.
