Buffy for President

September 23rd, 2008, 02:18 AM
One-year-old Buffy was almost entirely bald and 2lbs underweight when the RSPCA took her in three weeks ago. She now has a striped woollen sweater to wear thanks to a volunteer and is back to full health. She has become the star attraction at the RSPCA rescue centre at Brent Knoll, near Weston-Super-Mare, Somerset.

Deputy manager Emma Phillips has become Buffy's "foster mum" and keeps the hen in a luxury nestbox at the centre's chicken shed.
She said: "Sadly, we occasionally find hens in this state when we rescue them and when Buffy arrived she looked like she was oven-ready" But now she's bold enough to peck and scratch about and tries to join the other chickens sunbathing in the sunshine wearing her little jumper.

"Hopefully, with me acting as Buffy's foster parent she will be nursed back to health with a full set of feathers."

Buffy will be re-homed in the coming months when RSPCA vets give her the all clear.
