The Scottish SPCA is seeking the owner of a bantam hen found roaming in a garden in Leven, Fife.
We were called to rescue the hen after a local resident spotted her scratching about in his back garden at Montrave Crescent on Tuesday (24 July).
The hen, who has been named after American bantamweight boxing champion Kaliesha 'Wild Wild' West, is currently being cared for at our Angus, Fife and Tayside Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre at Petterden, by Dundee.
Animal Rescue Officer Bob Ward said, "When we were called to rescue a chicken we were expecting to find a regular-sized hen, but Kaliesha is a tiny wee thing, not much bigger than a pigeon.
"It had been raining and she was soaking wet so she seemed quite happy to be rescued and moved into the warm.
"Kaliesha is a very friendly girl in good condition so we think she's been kept as part of a small collection, possibly in a domestic setting.
"Chickens can flutter up into the air briefly but they can't fly so we assume she's escaped from somewhere nearby. However, we can't rule out the possibility that she may have been abandoned.
"If no-one comes forward to claim her we'll look after her until she can be found a new home, preferably with some other chickens to keep her company."
Anyone who recognises Kaliesha is being asked to call our Animal Helpline on 03000 999 999.
