TUCSON, Ariz. — Operators of food bank in southern Arizona say four of their live chickens were stolen from their coops.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the thief cut through a double-fence and left with four of the six Rhode Island hens from Nuestra Tierra Demonstration and Market Garden in Tucson.

Staffers didn't file a crime report.

The chickens were used at the demonstration garden to teach people how to raise egg-laying hens.

The hens were donated to the food bank in February and their eggs were sold at the organization's farmers market.
