Fowl play suspected in Southborough chicken theft

Southborough police are searching for a fowl thief who allegedly stole 45 adult chickens from a farm on Fisher Road. Police responded to the farm around 2 p.m. Sunday after a laborer at the farm noticed the chickens missing from their pen, Southborough Police Lieutenant Sean James said. The farmer estimated that the chickens are worth a total of $810. James said police are investigating the alleged theft but have no leads, adding, “We don’t get many chicken thefts around here.” In late March, 200 chicks were allegedly stolenfrom a farm in Ashburnham.
