#166, We cannot keep chickens here!

Swami Vivekananda wrote to Ms. Christina Greenstidel from Belur Monastery on Nov. 25, 1901:

" ... We cannot keep chickens here — they are forbidden to us. ..." .

*How many Bengalee customs did Swamiji respect?
*If chicken were kept, what would have been their fate? They would have been eventually culled. How many animals did Swamiji keep out of compassion?
