Last night we had red rooster for dinner... the boys didn't eat all theirs and put it on the table... i meant to put it in the fridge but fell asleep...

this morning i woke up... both boys plates are minus the chicken...

one plate had gravy... no gravy any where else such as the table or floor...

one plate had one bone left over, the other no bones in site...

no pets here... no one else bar the boys and i home... and no bones in the bins...


so where did the chicken go???

Have you checked the boys beds/bedrooms? Maybe the chicken got relocated?

I would be going with some sort of rodent.

Maybe the bones are now hanging around their neck in victorious tribute to their late night pilage?

Have you checked your fridge? Maybe you just don't remember putting it away.

How weird.

Maybe it was the boys having a midnight snack and they just don't want to tell you. I would prefer to think that rather than a rat or an animal. Or a poltergeist for that matter.

I bought about 300g of ham one day (I put it in a plastic container that night before going to bed) and woke up in the morning to make the girls sandwiches and more than half of it was gone. But that was in the fridge so it had to be a person. They all swear they didn't eat it but I have caught DD2 gobbling down a handful of ham before so I think it was her.

I used to have a boyfriend who was on stillnox.  He regularly would get up at night and eat vast quantities and claimed to have absolutely no memory of it the next day.  After losing several whole tubs of connoisseur this way we broke up.

Could someone be sleep walking?  (but the bones missing is weird)

lol it is still an unknown...

i rang DP this morning who was at his house and joked "btw did you break in to my house and eat chicken?"...

so now it is an "unknown" perp!

I guess if aliens want to eat my chicken i will just have to accept it...

And LindsayMK... I know i brought it on myself with such woeful parenting!
