Ontario Provincial Police is investigating the theft of 30 thousand 15-day-old chickens from a farm in Huron County.

Police say the young birds were taken from a farm in South Huron between 3:30pm Wednesday and 2:20am on Thursday — an undertaking that would require specific knowledge about barn equipment and animal handling.

The value of the missing flock is estimated at $42 thousand, or $1.40 per bird.

OPP are asking anyone with information to contact them at 1-888-310-1122, 1-800-222-TIPS, or online at http://P3tips.com.
