1. c+p+s = 100
.5c + 2p + 5s = 100

There are lots of answers, as long as there are an even number of chicks (so you have whole dollars for their cost)

For example, getting the most sheep possible, you have
2 chicks, 4 pigs, 19 sheep
Now, you can start converting each pig into 4 chicks, down to
6 chicks, 3 pigs, 19 sheep
and so on to
186 chicks ,1 pig ,1 sheep
