Narrated Umm Kurz:

The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Two sheep which resemble each other are to be sacrificed for a boy and one for a girl. Abu Dawud said: This is a sound tradition, and the tradition narrated by Sufyan is misunderstanding.

حَدَّثَنَا مُسَدَّدٌ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادُ بْنُ زَيْدٍ، عَنْ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ أَبِي يَزِيدَ، عَنْ سِبَاعِ بْنِ ثَابِتٍ، عَنْ أُمِّ كُرْزٍ، قَالَتْ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏

"‏ عَنِ الْغُلاَمِ شَاتَانِ مِثْلاَنِ وَعَنِ الْجَارِيَةِ شَاةٌ ‏"

‏ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ هَذَا هُوَ الْحَدِيثُ وَحَدِيثُ سُفْيَانَ وَهَمٌ ‏.‏
