If someone stole that chicken would it be considered grand larceny?

This too shall pass. Put the bird on newspapers and scramble the eggs through a sieve.
Now practical thinking.... all chickens of the same type look pretty much identical... depending on the age of the kid... I would seriously weigh the odds of a chick~napping. In a week the miraculous return of a new and improved version of the fiendish feathered diamond plucking clucker.

To you, all chickens look alike. I'll bet to Martians, we all look alike. Remember, they are here to "serve" man.

Meanwhile, the chicken has created a Power Point presentation showing the expected 8-year outlook on growth of diamond values to convince the owner that it's a very good investment to wait.
