Southborough resident says poultry was pilfered

Posted: Updated:

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- Southborough police are investigating the apparent theft of 45 chickens from a resident's coop.

Sgt. Ryan Newell says the chickens' owner reported the birds stolen on Sunday at about 1:30 p.m.

The resident told police he had shut the coop's gate the night before and that one of his workers found the gate still shut in the morning -- but no birds.

There were no signs of damage to the gate.

The MetroWest Daily News reports that the chickens were valued at $18 each, putting the total value of the stolen fowls at $810.
