When on the morning of May 18, 1944, all the inhabitants of the village of Urkusta (Peredovoe) near Balaklava were gathered near the cemetery, 16-year-old Ferat Ametov did not lose his head and, without being notived by the soldiers, ran home several times to collect things and food. He managed to take a chicken and 16 chickens with him. All the way in the carriages, he fed the birds with crumbs of bread, which he ate himself. In exile, the Crimean chickens lived with the Ametovs for a long time. And the quick-wittedness of Ferat more than once saved the family from hunger.
