A greengrocer in southern Türkiye has made friends with a crow chick that he found five months ago

A greengrocer in southern Türkiye has made friends with a crow chick that he found five months ago

Turkish grocer takes baby crow under his wing.

Naming his new companion Sakir, 52-year-old Tekin Talsik shared his home and shop in the province of Hatay with the bird until it recovered.

On a diet of vitamins, bird feed, and fresh produce including watermelon and cucumbers, Sakir the Crow is now strong and lively after being nursed back to health by Talsik and his son, Kubilay, who is a bird enthusiast.

“I never put him in a cage. He roams freely,” said Talsik, who says he discounted warnings based on a Turkish proverb: “Feed the crow and it’ll gouge your eye.”

Now close companions, Talsik said Sakir comes with him every day when he goes between home and work. “Sakir is now a member of our household,” he explained.

“We left him a few times in the wild to see whether he would want to leave. Despite the other crows flying around, he hasn’t left us. He proved loyal. Now, we’ve become coworkers.”
