    We went out right after my girl got off the bus and we were only gone for a few hours. I didn't notice anything awry when we got home, but my 5 year old just came running into the house and said all the runs were open. *sigh*

    So, I've lost my 3 ringnecks that JimnJanet, BYC members were nice enough to give us, I've only found 2 of my eight 4 week old chicks, which are in the "nursery run" during the day, I'm not seeing either roo, so if they're both gone, I've lost my EE and the RIR that JimnJanet also brought us, and I called and called for the girls, and only 5 came up out of the woods.

    I'm waiting on the State Police. I'm so freaking angry I can hardly stand it. Freaking jerk-off losers with nothing better to do than destroy and take away from people just trying to make their way.

    If I've really lost all those chickens, I'm done until Spring.

    I'm going out to look for more missing birds and wait for the trooper.

    What kind of locks do you have on your pens? If they cut them off then it is a much different crime than just opening a gate or taking them. I'm sorry you are going through this, people just have no respect.

    Why would people do this? Do you think it could be kids that just got out of school too?
  5. HOW HORRIBLE! Oh, I'd just be sick to my stomach! That happened to my little 90 year old grandma. Someone opened up her coop & stole her to RIR hens & her pair of Muscovies. [​IMG] She is still heartbroken about it & that was probably 15 years ago.

    I am sorry this happened to you. [​IMG]

    My cousin had this happen to her last fall. We are pretty sure that it was teenagers.

    So sorry for you!

    That's the absolute pits. Just glad the `slugs' didn't get them all.

    Take care!
