Cedric the cockerel was found by a road repair team alongside the dead chickens who had been dumped on the roadside.
They spotted some movement among a pile of feathers and found Cedric was still alive and struggling among the mound of other dead birds.
Recovering in Godshill
The road workers took him to the RSPCA Isle of Wight’s Godshill Animal Centre where he is recovering from his ordeal.
The young cockerel is scrawny and has lost some of his feathers but is otherwise unharmed, and now looking for a home where he can enjoy his favourite treat – broccoli.
Loving home wanted
Georgina Fryer, an animal care assistant at RSPCA Isle of Wight’s Godshill Animal Centre, said:
“We’re really keen to see Cedric go to a loving new home and encourage anyone who thinks they can offer him the fantastic future he deserves after his upsetting ordeal to get in touch.
“With the right care and knowledge, cockerels and chickens make great pets and are fascinating and fun to watch.”
