I was out cleaning and re-stocking my chicken coop this morning...I had my 11 pullets and 1 cockeral out foraging. I had a hispanic man that was working on my neighbor's horse farm come over and ask me for a chicken.....I was shocked, I just said.....No, they are my pets and are for eggs......He patted me on the shoulder and nodded his head....I said.."I sorry, but they are pets". so he went on his way. What was weird was....just a few minutes before I was petting my Lucy and thinking.....The only way I could eat her is if I were starving. I know this man was not starving....my neighbor has many people work for him and they do well......but I still feel a little bad. I wish I had a dozen eggs I could have run in the house to give him.......But my girls are just staring to lay. Am I bad for saying no?????
