Blue egg chooks stolen

Dubbo Photo News - - Emergency issues -

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.
