AN ALLORA chook yard owner has captured video of an unlikely thief taking freshly laid eggs.

The owner installed a hidden motion-sensor camera when he noticed eggs were going missing.

When reviewing the subsequent footage he had quite a surprise.

The video showed that a pesky, but skilled crow was the culprit of the crimes.

The crow was able to pick out whole eggs and fly off with them in its beak.

We'd love to hear what's gone missing from your property at the hands, or even beaks, of unlikely culprits.
