They say a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
Not so for Steve Morrow, whose desired purchase of one bird accidentally resulted in ownership of 1,000 hens.
Morrow told Insider that he was browsing Trademe.co.nz, New Zealand’s largest auction website, when he stumbled upon a post that was for “urgent sale.”
The seller, Matthew Blomfield, later spoke to Morrow and asked him about what he planned to do with 1,000 hens.
“I was stunned, shocked, and speechless,” Morrow said.
