We came home tonight and went and checked on the chickens only to find out someone has taken one of my chicks!!! I did research before getting my chickens to make sure it was 'legal' and we found nothing that said we COULD NOT have them. My neighbor has them and I also spoke to someone in the same city and county that also has chickens. None of us has found anything that specifically says we can't have them. My husband and neighbor both said not to call the police but what the heck do I do? Now we are going to have to put padlocks on the door and window to the coop and the door to the run just to protect someone from taking more chickens. This happen some time after 3:51 pm and 8:30 pm. My thinking is if someone is going to come in my yard and steal a chicken then they are going to have the nerve to break into a home during the day. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to keep the remainder of my chickens safe from some nutty bird who had the nerve to steal a chicken during daylight hours?! I just don't want to find out houses are being broken into in my area because I didn't report that someone stole something from us...and in turn they think they 'got away with it' and start doing bigger crimes.
