    Well over the weekend we went to East Texas to visit some relatives. When we returned, I noticed after being home all of 5 minutes that I hadn't heard the chickens like I normally do, so I went to check on 'em. Upon closer inspection I found about a 3 foot wide by 6 foot tall hole cut in the side of the run. There were a pair of SNAP-ON sidecutters near said hole, and all but two roosters and a juvenile hen were GONE! There arent even any feathers left! So it appears someone STOLE my ENTIRE FLOCK!

    Does anyone have any birds they would part with so I can re-establish my flock?

    I would see if i could find who took them and give them a piece of my mind..... and take my chickens back.​

    Definitely file a police report! Talk to neighbors and ask if any saw or heard anything.

    I suppose there's an outside chance that someone thought they had been abandoned without care for while you were gone and temporarily "rescued" them; I am assuming that they had adequate food, water and shade, but that someone thought they didn't.

    Keep an eye on craigslist or any other media for your birds. If you see them and know they are yours, contact the police.
