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?
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.
