By the time of their discovery, some were either already dead or were in such poor condition that they had to be put down. Most, however, “did not appear to be suffering,” according to Stubbs.
The chicks were quickly rounded up and put into boxes to keep warm. RSPCA officials are sure that the birds were dropped off by a “third party official” from a nearby commercial chick producer. The investigation is ongoing.
“These tiny birds wouldn’t have survived long out on their own at such a young age and in such unpredictable weather conditions,” Stubbs added. “For someone to dump these vulnerable chicks is unbelievable.”
