Chicken rescued after being found wandering outside KFC restaurant

A chicken has been rescued after being found wandering outside a KFC restaurant in Clackmannanshire. The ISA Brown chicken was discovered roaming around on Clackmannan Road in Alloa on Monday.

The bird, who has been named Peggy, is now in the care of the Scottish SPCA's Edinburgh and Lothians animal rescue and rehoming centre. Kirsty McQuade, animal rescue officer, said: "Peggy is missing a lot of feathers and isn't in great condition.

"At this stage we don't know how she came to be there. She could have strayed from home but we also have to consider that she may have been abandoned. Clackmannan Road is very busy and Peggy could easily have been run over, so we're really glad she was rescued.

"Anyone who can help us with our inquiries should get in touch as soon as possible. We'll look after Peggy and find her a loving new owner if she can't be returned home. Anyone with information is being asked to contact the SPCA."
