    Question Sticking to their chicken

    Dear Sir,
    what does that mean? The context is business. Some companies dabble in the area which they have no cutting edge, some just be too narrow and loss their flexibility, not being focus.
    Thanks a lot
    Your truly

    I've never heard that. In context, it might mean to focus on what you do well. Of course, that would make more sense if you were in the chicken business.

    Apparently, some companies dabble in areas in which they have no expertise. (That seems silly to me, but what do I know?)

    The expression is lose their/his/her/your focus.
