Chicken Eggs

Business-Halacha-logo

“What if a person found roosters, which do not lay eggs?” asked Shmuel.

“The finder only has to tend to them for a short time and then can sell them,” said Rabbi Dayan. “When the owner comes, the finder should return their value. To charge the owner the cost of feeding the roosters would almost negate the value of what is being returned.” (C.M. 267:22-24)

“Thank you,” said Shmuel. “I’ll check if Dov lost his chickens.”

Question: If Abraham was commanded to circumcise his descendants on the eighth day, why do Arabs – who claim to descend from Abraham through Yishmael – wait until their children are 13 to circumcise them? I am aware that this is a matter of little consequence to our people. Nevertheless, this inconsistency is one that piques my curiosity.
