An animal charity is seeking homes for 27 cockerels and 3 ducks.
Scotland’s animal welfare charity is caring for the large number of birds at their Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre, after their previous home was found to be unsuitable for their needs.
Three ducks and 27 cockerels are currently being looked after in Drumoak.
Scottish SPCA assistant centre manager Claire Tyczynska said: “It’s always very sad when animals have to be removed from homes due to unsuitable conditions, however, we’ll now look after these birds until new homes can be found for them.
“Cockerels are perhaps an unusual animal to consider rehoming but they make great companions in the right homes, and can be rehomed in groups or alone to keep some resident hens company.
“Although they don’t play fetch, they certainly have their own personalities and can be a delight to care for.”
Anyone who can offer any of the cockerels or ducks a suitable new home is being asked to contact the Scottish SPCA’s centre in Drumoak, Banchory on 03000 999 999.
The appeal comes after nearly 90 dogs and puppies were seized during a raid at East Mains of Ardlogie farm near Fyvie.
