Chicken-napped!

emilys stolen chickenEmily contacted us last night after what appears to be a chicken-napping in her South Troy backyard. She continued via email:

The kids near my back yard said it was a woman who looked like a crackhead, and she was muttering something about eating it. I drove all around my area asking people if they'd seen anyone carrying around a chicken. Most people thought I was joking.
A little girl a block or two from my house said she'd seen her round the corner onto 4th St. After a while I just had to give up. I think the most frustrating thing is that she is a pretty light chicken, not good for much food, and if someone is hungry they could stop by the Unity House or Joseph's House.

Emily posted a video this past summer giving a tour of her backyard chicken setup. Chickens are allowed in Troy (but not in Albany and Schenectady).

As strange as it may sound... if you see someone carrying a chicken around South Troy, please contact Emily. She's @ChateauOfADoubt on Twitter.

Aw. I hope they find her safe and sound.

Wow. That says a lot about that woman's state of mind and desperation-sad on both levels. I truly hope that red beauty is found safe & sound.

Good old crackheads...

Emily hope you find your hen. It's disappointing that what is yours is not safe in your own backyard. If the alleged woman did take it, hopefully she needs it more than Emily does. Otherwise may she find it a tough bird!
