On Friday, around 1,000 Tiny small chicks were found abandoned in a field in Cambridgeshire which is near Peterborough, in central England.
Last week on Friday morning, someone noticed these 1-day-old baby chicks running around in Crowland, near Peterborough.
Animal welfare workers in eastern England are examining how 1,000 day-old chicks left in a field to die.
Since then, the RSPCA had organized an investigation team to find out who left the 1000 chicks to die.
After the concerned passersby alerted him on Friday to the inspector for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, he said: “I have never seen anything like it, it was just a sea of yellow and the noise was incredible.”
In a written statement, the inspector Justin Stubbs said: “The chicks are only about a day old and are really tiny and quite sensitive”.
Sadly, he disclosed that some of the baby chickens were either already dead or in such bad condition by the time of their finding that they had to be put down.
He further added: “Thankfully, most of the baby chicks did not appear to be hurt”.
RSPCA officials said that they thought the young chicks came from a nearby commercial chick producer and were left “by a third-party.”
After discovering the chicks, members of the public came to collect the surviving birds and take them back to their unit.
RSPCA put them all into boxes where they could gather together for heat.
