MSPCA 'Overwhelmed' With Birds After Large Back-To-Back Surrenders, Looking For Adopters

METHUEN (CBS) -- The MSPCA says it is overwhelmed with birds after back-to-back surrenders and is now putting out an urgent call for adoptions.

Last week almost 50 lovebirds, conures and parakeets were rescued from a Norfolk County home. Back in August, 87 chickens were removed from "deplorable" conditions at a Webster farm where they did not have access to fresh food and water.

The MSPCA said the coronavirus pandemic could play to its advantage - the rescued chickens are all hens and lay eggs at a time when people are looking for different food sources.

Some of the chickens were in rough shape and the MSPCA says it is working to get them healthy.
