Say what you will, but 1,000 chickens for $0.96 is a great deal

Say what you will, but 1,000 chickens for $0.96 is a great deal

A situation that could have ended as a feathery nightmare instead has a warm and fuzzy ending. The manager of a bed and breakfast in Hamilton, New Zealand, was shocked this week when it turned out his winning bid for “a couple” of chickens in an online auction was in fact for 1,000 chickens, which had been listed for “urgent sale” due to the closure of the free-range egg farm where they...
