"While on patrol in the Paradise area looking for looters, I heard the faint sound of a chicken," the unnamed officer wrote on CHP- Oroville's Facebook page.

"After a short hike, I located about a dozen chickens that literally ran to me. I gave them my water, but didn't have any food, so the search for food began."

"I was able to locate a big bag of oatmeal and two big bags of 'Life' cereal in the nearby garage. These chickens were sooooo happy to be fed and watered. Whoever owns these chickens, I owe you a few bags of cereal, sorry."

The chicken owners recognized the birds and the house and contacted the officer via Facebook.

"I met them and they provided me supplies, so I went back to feed and water my new friends and discovered they had left me a few gifts," the officer wrote in an update.

The gifts?

Freshly laid eggs from the appreciative hens.
