The owners of a distinctive hen are offering a reward for her safe return following its theft from local allotments.
A pet Cream Legbar hen – which lays distinctive blue eggs – was stolen from Hagg Lane allotments between 7pm on Tuesday 3 December and 10.30am on Wednesday 4 December.
Tools were used to break into the shed and hen run. The other hens were left frightened in the run, even though the door had been left wedged open with a large stone. The incident has been reported to the police.
If anyone knows anything about the hen then please get in touch with the owners by emailing email@example.com. A reward has been offered for her safe return.
