Five rare breed hens were stolen from Temple Newsam Farm in Leeds:four large black Transylvanian naked neck hens and one Wheaten Marsh Daisy Hen.

Police believe the hens were stolen to order as a number of lesser breeds were left behind.

The latest theft follows a similar incident earlier this year when ten Indian Runner ducks were stolen from the farm on February 2.

If anyone can shed light on either of these two incidents please get in touch with the police.
