Bunch of Teals

Difficulty level:

Two hunters went out to slaughter teals on a hunting trip by a large lake. Here comes a band of teals, commanded by a leader and guided by a battling teal. Upon sighting the hunters, the scouting morocco immediately alters the pack's route, taking its mates to safety. Arriving there, comments with the leading morocco:

We arrived unharmed, the whole hundred!

The leading morocco replies:

You must be stressed. He even unlearned to tell. It is a long time before we reach a hundred. Do the math yourself:

Double our number, add half and quarter more, and make sure to include you in the account. That way you can settle the score.

What is the actual number of teals?
