Lock Up Your Chickens

In a strange bit of thievery burglars in England have snatched dozens of chickens. Two allotment holders in Dunton Bassett locked up their prize guinea fowl and chickens on Thursday only to discover Friday morning that 80 had been stolen overnight.

Police have confirmed they are investigating the incident and urged people to make sure their chickens sheds, cages and hutches are well secured.

A spokesman from the Poultry Club of Great Britain said: “Every so often somebody just breaks in and takes birds – it doesn’t have to be rare ones. It’s an awful thing breeders are up against.”
