SYKESVILLE, Md. (AP) -- The chickens taken from a farm in Maryland have come home to roost.
Karen Jacob says the six chickens taken from her home have been returned in healthy condition this week.
She arrived at her farm near Sykesville on Sunday to find a sticky note saying: "Sorry I couldn't find you. Took six chickens, left $40." The note was signed, "Frank."
Jacob and her husband occasionally sell eggs from their 20 chickens, but they don't sell the chickens. Jacob said the chickens belong to her two young sons.
Jacob tells the Carroll County Times (http://bit.ly/Ki1e6r ) that "Frank" returned all six birds. She says there was a misunderstanding involving a person in the surrounding neighborhood who was selling chickens.
She said "Frank" was mortified and wanted to keep his identity anonymous. Her and her husband now have a sign up saying: "No eggs for sale. No chickens for sale. No livestock for sale."
