Pigeon fanciers are being asked to come forward to rehome a flock of unclaimed domestic birds.

The RSPCA wildlife centre in Nantwich is on the lookout for bird-lovers to re-home a total of 20 domestic pigeons which have found their way into the care of staff there.

Stapeley Grange regularly receives a number of domestic birds throughout the year, but particularly during the quieter winter months when there is less wildlife in the hospital but it can be difficult to find new homes for them.

Many of the pigeons are ex-racers but there are also fancy pigeons who are looking for new homes.

Lee Stewart, manager at Stapeley Grange, which is based in London Road, said: “All animals deserve a second chance and we are always keen to find new homes for every domestic pigeon which comes through our doors, if we are unable to reunite them with their owner.

“It can be hard finding new homes for them as not many people have the facilities to house pigeons. We are keen for anyone who would like to rehome our pigeons to get in touch with us.”

One of the pigeons which is currently looking for a new home was found grounded in Sandbach on September 7.

After two weeks care and recovery, he is now on the lookout for a new home as his original owner can’t be traced.

Lee added: “Before deciding to rehome any birds it’s important to consider if you have the knowledge, time, facilities, money and commitment needed to care for them.
