Hundreds of social media users were left cackling after reading a bizarre note from a neighbour who needed help catching an escaped chicken.
While plenty of Brits keep a small coop in rural areas, it’s not particularly normal to wake up to a flightless bird in your garden.
Let alone, up in your trees (how did it even get up there?).
But, it seems that’s exactly what happened to one bloke as he shared the funny note his neighbours sent him.
In the Reddit forum, r/Casual UK, he captioned a snap of the letter with: “Anyone know how to throw a chicken over the fence?”
The note read: “Hello, our chicken has got stuck in your garden.
“It’s up your tree.
“Please could you text me to get it (or throw it over!).
The image of someone lobbing a chicken over a garden fence is one we had never thought of before.
And, jokesters quickly made light of the odd request.
One person said: “When they're thrown, they kinda half flap their wings about and it works a bit like a sh** parachute, so you'd be surprised how high you can throw a chicken from.
“Source: have thrown chickens from height.”
Another added: “Throw it over next door's fence with a note attached asking them to throw it over the next person's fence.
“Repeat until it gets to the rightful garden.”
“Handle it gently,” laughed a third. “You don't want to fall fowl of the neighbours.”
One baffled lad noted: “I would stick my head over the fence and ask the neighbour how to throw a chicken.”
And someone suggested “like a rugby ball” – not sure we’d recommend that.

However, one person knew how and added: “Literally throw it.
“They pretty much fly, they are just sh** at it.
“Just give it a fighting chance by letting it’s wings out and throwing it upright.
“Don’t go swinging it round by the legs and launching it like you’re throwing a hammer.”
