The end of an era.

Today Ali and his daughter Merve came over to round up all my chickens for transport to their home. Including Donald Duck, there was 30 of them altogether. We will now buy our eggs from Ali.

My dog Niko has just realised that she won't be seeing anymore chicken dinners.

I wonder if the clue is in the OP Charlotte.

Re: The end of an era.

OP is -the end of an era? I am asking why? Perhaps it's no longer cost effective, or perhaps they've had enough of the work or perhaps they're planning to travel more. Who knows. Hence my question.

As we thought of getting chickens this year I was wondering in case there's a factor we had overlooked.

I said in the OP, read Nikko and chicken dinners, might be wrong though.

Re: The end of an era.

I'm obviously missing something so I guess I'll wait for Pete to answer - if he wants to.

Re: The end of an era.

Martin,

Have I done something to offend you? You seem to be going out of your way to be rude to me on this thread - it was a simple question to Pete. Nothing to do with you, but you seem intend on making me feel like an idiot.

Thanks, what started as a bit of chit chat on my part has turned into quite a sour Saturday morning.

Perhaps it's you who's missing something.

Re: The end of an era.

Your right Charlotte, maybe Pete was keeping chickens to feed his dogs, so maybe I have missed something from the original post.

Re: The end of an era.

No, I just assumed (like my neighbours here in Turkey) he kept some chickens for food and some for eggs, and fed the dog chicken feet (and other bits) as a treat.

I know he's had the chickens for a while so didn't think it was because the dog kept killing them. I know lots of people who keep chicken and dogs together, and nothing happens to the chickens.

Just thought I'd ask but obviously there was nothing more to the thread and not up for discussion!
