stolen chooks
« on: April 29, 2010, 16:44 »
all of my breeding stock have been stolen about 27 birds in all its taken 1.5 years its taken to get my stock together ready for breeding and there all gone this happened a week ago but i havent felt like coming on here to say its such a shock i felt really sick of it all i nearly gave up on the chooks but i guess i will just have to try and get some hatching eggs and start again it cost so much money to get eggs in the first place some of them costing 30 quid for 6 eggs when i was working it was alright but  i cant aford that now i will just have to get what i can to start with

What an awful thing to hapen, somehow it seems even worse as you're in such a small and lovely place as Guernsey.

My heart goes out to you.  That's like losing family.  Hope the police have some chance of cathcing the ***********s.  Just don't think of things like that happening on Guernsy.
So sorry. :(

Hi this is awful, we have hatched all we need this year so if you want any hatching eggs - free of course and you dont mind paying the postage you are quite welcome, we only breed bantams.

Oh Goodegg, I'm sorry to hear about your chickens!  Any hope of catching the thief?

I have fertile araucana eggs (so far with my hatchings they have been 100% fertile) if you want although I am not sure if legally we can send them to the Channel Islands without a licence  :(.
Staffies are softer than you think.

at the moment i am making my coop thief proof i hope so when i get new chooks they will be locked up and safe i hope i thought they were safe before on such a small island i dont think the police got any chance of finding them or the inclanation they are far to busy to bother with chooks i have more chance of finding them myself i would recognize a lot of them because i bred them all from eggs and there is a lot that anyone over here hasnt got there all rare breed chooks and some new varieties that ive bred.which i am unable to replace.

How lovely it is to see that there are still some great people out there willing to help.

If I had any fertile eggs I too would send you some but we need a cockerel for that and we don't have one lol.
