A man approached me to ask if he and his relatives could come to my farm to retrieve live birds for him to process on his own. From the tone of the conversation and other context clues, I gathered that it was for religious purposes. Out of respect, I didn't ask him which religion. He didn't share, and I think he was concerned I would oppose if he told me.
He told me he didn't want white or red birds, but didn't know the breed he's used in the past. He said they were "black ones and yellow ones".
He also wanted to come on Mardi Gras weekend (this past weekend), but I didn't have any available then. I don't know if that date was important to him, or if it was just that he had that weekend available. He's a professor at the local university.
I think he is Muslim or Hindu, but probably Muslim based on some clues.
My biggest question is, WHAT KIND OF CHICKEN DOES HE WANT????
I'll take any and all guesses, but it would be awesome if someone on here actually has experience with this! If anyone knows for sure what religion he is, I can google that and perhaps find my answer! He wants a large amount of birds, so I don't want to get the breed wrong and be stuck with a bunch of birds.
If he is Muslim and looking for Halal meat, I didn't know the breed mattered.
