The PICAXE 28x1 has 8

The PICAXE 28x1 has 8 outputs, so you should be able to control 6 servos, as long as you don't need to do much else. There are also dedicated servo controller boards that let you manage multiple servos from your microcontroller, so you don't need to dedicate one output for each servo.

BTW, you should post this as a question on the forums, rather than a Robot page. Until you have started building, you shouldn't start a Robot page. See the FAQ.
