I checked on my chickens 5:30 PM yesterday. (Thurs 10/29) All was well. 6:30 this morning I drove my car into my yard to use the headlights to give fresh water & food for chicks. Missing is a large dog house with heavy plastic flaps in the door to keep wind out. Inside the house a stainless steel shelf holding a brand new heat lamp with a new 250 watt bulb. One food dish. 1 chicken waterer in the pen.. 3 barred rock babies & my 1 and only true ameraucana. There are 2 adjoining pens I use til the chicks are big enough to move into the coop. My araucana in the other pen. I reported it to the state police. We have no local police here. I moved my 3 rumpless araucana into a iron parrot cage & put that in the chicken coop. I put their "dog" house inside the chicken run. I put several zip ties on the gate. Hoping to slow or discourage theft of anything inside. I will get a padlock tomorrow. This is the missing house. This is the 2 pens connected together. my 3 araucana here you can see 1 of the barred rocks in the adjoining pen. The dog houses are at the back of each pen. Covered with tarp in the photo. I am so disgusted. Why would anyone steal a doghouse & those contents?
