    My chickens are kleptomaniacs! They steal and hide things all the time. Once it was 3 wooden eggs - didn't appear again for several weeks. This last "theft" was funny. I dropped a pair of reading glasses out there somewhere. Knew I had and went back to look. Nope, not there. I searched high and low - though obviously not well enough. Yesterday, opened the gate to let them out of their fun and there lay my glasses right in front of the gate. A little dusty but no worse for the wear. If they'd found the chickens 101 book, they'd have been making demands I imagine. LOL
