About 200 birds were stolen from cages on Watborough Farm, in Tilton-on-the-Hill, Leicestershire, on August 7, before the same number were taken from Limes Farm in nearby Gaulby on August 17.

The 400 birds are worth about £1,300, Leicestershire Police said.

Pc Chris Hill, from the force, said: "We would like to speak to anyone who has been offered a large number of pheasants, or who knows where they may have been kept.

"The birds are probably too small to be used for human consumption, and too small to fly, so they may have been taken elsewhere until they are more mature."
