Have you seen my Skippy?
Skippy because he does a little dance around people’s legs.
Originally the couple had three cockerels but when they get older they tend to fight and they had to find other homes for two of them. Now it is just Molly, Golly and Skippy the cockerel. He is a friendly bird and while he struts about as if he owns the place, Ann said he is happy to snuggle up with his owners.
But he doesn’t take kindly to strangers, acting as a guard cockerel and regularly frightening visitors away.
But he has now been missing for a week and Ann, who works at an insurance firm, is growing increasingly worried.
She said: “I came home from work on Thursday evening and they had all put themselves to bed.
“But when they didn’t rise on Monday I grew worried and eventually phoned the police.
“Whoever took him was brave because he can be like a rottweiler. But he was lovely with us. He used to rest his head on my shoulder.” Ann is now offering a cash reward for any information leading to his safe return.
Anyone with information should contact Cambridgeshire police on 101.
A spokesman for the force said: “We received reports of a cockerel going missing from a garden in Papyrus Way, Sawtry, on December 9.
“I would urge anyone with any information about the incident to call police on 101.”
concern: Ann D’angelo with Molly and Golly.
