THE MISHNA FIRST MENTIONS THE BEHEMA AND THEN STARTS OFF AGAIN WITH A CHICKEN. WHY DOES THE MISHNA NEED TO MENTION THE TARNEGOLES?
Reuven Konnik, Berlin, Germany
The Nimukei Yosef answers: The Mishnah with the case of Tarnegoles shows that a person is responsible for his birds as well as his animals (see similarly Bava Kama 54b) and they are considered Mu'ad for Regel and also for Shein.
All the best,
