As we know, Marie Young had some french chickens with her, but were they food or pet? I read that she was taken to see them, which makes them sound like pets, but also they were cared for by the butcher. Any info regarding this?

"She remembers that chickens escaped from the kitchen and began running around on deck."

A book I have on Titanic indicates that Marie Young was not the chicken owner- there may have been several chickens by different owners. One lady wrote of being woken up every morning by a rooster in the hold.

Has anyone ever come across any description of the chickens beyond they are fancy and French. Do we know where she got them specifically? Did she get them near Cherbourg?
