Blue egg chooks stolen
WHO would be low enough to steal someone’s chooks?
I’ve taken great delight in the blue eggs produced by Cassie’s O’neill’s Fresh Eggs, a micro business on Dubbo’s outskirts where you pick up the eggs at the front gate and leave your money – the good old honesty system designed back when more people were honest.
Cassie arrived home to find almost all her specialist Araucana chickens had been taken along with her rooster of the same breed.
She posted the theft to social media to let her loyal customers know of the setback and was inundated with offers of help.
“I am absolutely humbled by the support I’ve received from everyone from far and wide. From WA to Sydney and everywhere in between, but in particular Dubbo and surrounding towns,” she said.
“I only did my post so my customers knew why I’ve gone from heaps of eggs one weekend to none the next, and why there won’t be eggs available in coming weeks.”
She’s knocked back the many suggestions to set up a Go Fund Me.
“It doesn’t sit right with me when there are people who need help with cancer treatment or have lost everything in house fires, etc,” she said.
“To me those are worthy causes. “I don’t want to be seen as another Israel Folau so please don’t send me money,” she added.
She’ll buy some more chooks when she’s able to and get back in business.
In the meantime, if anyone has any information on this crime please call Dubbo police.
Driving to the conditions: Police, paramedics and firies were on the scene of an accident on the eastern side of the Serisier Bridge on Monday afternoon. Local RFS teams have been using the cooler months to do training.
