Narrated 'Aishah:

The Messenger of Allah ﷺ used to sacrifice goat out of every fifty goats.

Abu Dawud said: Fara' means the first baby camel born (to the Arabs). They used to sacrifice it for their idols, and then eat it, and its skin was thrown on a tree. 'Atira was a sacrifice made during the first ten days of Rajab.
حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ عُثْمَانَ بْنِ خُثَيْمٍ، عَنْ يُوسُفَ بْنِ مَاهَكَ، عَنْ حَفْصَةَ بِنْتِ عَبْدِ الرَّحْمَنِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ، قَالَتْ أَمَرَنَا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم مِنْ كُلِّ خَمْسِينَ شَاةً شَاةٌ ‏.‏ قَالَ أَبُو دَاوُدَ قَالَ بَعْضُهُمُ الْفَرَعُ أَوَّلُ مَا تُنْتَجُ الإِبِلُ كَانُوا يَذْبَحُونَهُ لِطَوَاغِيتِهِمْ ثُمَّ يَأْكُلُونَهُ وَيُلْقَى جِلْدُهُ عَلَى الشَّجَرِ وَالْعَتِيرَةُ فِي الْعَشْرِ الأُوَلِ مِنْ رَجَبٍ ‏.‏
