Trying to use pie charts symbology.

I am trying to create pie chart symbology for producing zones of a well. We have 6 zone columns (zone1, zone2, zone3, etc...) Each number in the zone columns represent the formation name, which is held in another column (string). I would like to know if it is possible to have the pie chart be equal in the number of zones instead of the value of the number inside the column. For instance: If well 1 has 2 zones, the pie chart will be half/half instead of the value of the numbers. If well 6 has all 6 zones, then it will be in 6 equally shaped slices instead of the value of the numbers. Thanks.

I'm doing something very similar, except instead of point data (wells), I have polygons (mineral leases.) Also, I'm trying to have the pie chart fill the entire polygon without extending into neighbouring areas. Any idea how to do these two things?
