A cockerel seen aimlessly wandering around Kenilworth’s streets last week has found a new home after a passer-by took it to the vets.
The bird caused onlookers to double take as it ambled aimlessly around Guy Road and the surrounding area before it was taken to Avonvale Veterinary Centre in Birches Lane.
Senior vet Kieran O’Halloran checked the cockerel while staff at the surgery put out an ultimately fruitless appeal to find its owner on the Avonvale Facebook page.
After giving the patient a clean bill of health, Avonvale took care of the cockerel overnight before it was adopted by new owners the following day.
Kieran said: “I must say we don’t get too many stray cockerels being brought into the surgery but thankfully this one was in good condition and is now enjoying a new home – which is hopefully secure.”
