Appeal for information after a chicken abandoned in cardboard box

abandoned chicken

We are appealing for information after a chicken was found abandoned in a cardboard box at an industrial estate in Kilsyth.

A member of the public found the box at Queenzieburn Industrial Estate, Kilsyth around 2.30pm on Tuesday 12 March.
Scottish SPCA animal rescue officer, Eilidh Hoehle, said: “This very friendly chicken was found abandoned and taped up in a cardboard box.

“She looks in good condition and appears to have been looked after.

“We appreciate that whoever left this chicken may have intended for her to be found but this is not the correct way to give up a pet if you can no longer care for them.

“The chicken is now being cared for at one of our animal rescue and rehoming centres.

“If anyone recognises this chicken or has any information surrounding her circumstances, they should call our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”




If anyone is concerned about an animal, please do not hesitate to contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.

We need your support. From as little as £1, you can save lives.
