I just read this in the BYC FB group. Reposting here for those that don't do FB:
A conversation I had yesterday morning...seriously:
Person: Hi. I heard you haVe chicks for sale.
Me: yes I do. What can I help you with?
Person: I have a couple of questions first.
Me: Okay. I will do my best to answer them.
Person: Do you have vegitarian chickens?
P: Yes, I only want vegitarian chickens. I don't want chickens that eat bugs and frogs and stuff.
Me: Uh, well, can I explain...
P: Also, are all of your chicks freerange? I don't believe they should be in cages.
Me: Well, they are only a week or so old, so...
P: And I need them to be litter trained, because I don't want them pooping everywhere.
P: And I want 3 roosters and 3 hens each, but I only want breeds that don't crow because I am in the city.
Me: So, let me get this You want vegitarian, litter trained, free range babies that won't make noise. Correct?
P: Exactly! When can I come get some?
Me: I am so sorry. We are all sold out of those for the rest of the year.
P: Oh, darn. I told my husband we should have ordered earlier.
Me: Wow. Okay. Thank you for calling.
Side note...hot coffee coming up through the nose hurts very very much, as does th resulting choking on it.
