First I need to preface this by stating this is NOT a religious discussion! I am only mentioning religion as the the how/why of a purchase request. My stepfather was talking to a Rabbi at the flea market the other day. He mentioned guinea hens and step-dad piped up with "my daughter breeds those" which prompted a call to me. The Rabbi would like to order full grown guineas. Sometimes hens, sometimes cocks depending on the ceremony. I have never heard of this before so I had to ask 'why'. This ceremony does not harm the bird in fact the bird is released to find a new family. This is where my dilemma begins: the place is in the city. (By city I mean 15 minutes outside of Pittsburgh) He would like 6-8 birds every 2 months. That's a lot of guineas to be letting go in the city. I know once they leave my hands I get no say in what happens to them. However, making a decision to sell them knowing they will be released near a major city seems to go against what I would like for my birds. So...what would you do? Take the $$, sell the birds and forget about it? Or take the birds future into consideration and not sell them? Please...lets not discuss the religious part, I would like the thread to stay open. I do believe that information was a vital part of the dilemma though. Thanks!
