There are two reports of houses being damaged by plucked chickens crashing through their roofs in Newcastle in the New South Wales Hunter Valley.
Warrick Slee says when he and his family returned to their Fletcher home on Sunday after a weekend away, they found a smelly house and eventually located a rotting animal corpse in the ceiling.
Last month, another resident of the same suburb reported a plucked chicken had crashed through the roof of his home.
Mr Slee says he did not believe it at first, but now he is not so sure.
"I think you know there's something unusual going on," he said.
