London, July 9 (ANI): A cockerel named Elvis has come to be known as a “ladykiller” after his hen’s death from exhaustion, which believably was a result of her inability to keep up with her mate’s sexual appetite.
The cockerel, who used to have four hens vying for his attention, was left with only Berol to keep his libido satisfied after three of the lot died.
According to reports, Berol had to be put to sleep after becoming exhausted by Elvis’s constant demands.
One-year-old Elvis’ owner Katherine Cooke, who works as a nurse at Buckley House veterinary surgery in Hucknall, Nottinghamshire, is now searching for a new home and hen harem for the cockerel.
“Elvis is a young, fit cockerel and he wants what all cockerels want, a new harem – a new group of ladies,” the Telegraph quoted Katherine, 32, as saying.
“He very handsome and is a stereotypical cockerel like the one off the Kellogg’s boxes. He is quite the bachelor.
“He has had a troubled life. He used to live with four lady friends but unfortunately rats got in to their coop one night and there was a mass murder and three of them died. Berol was certainly then the centre of his attention,” she added.
She presently keeps Elvis in a coop at a horse’s stables in nearby Ravenshead.
“Elvis is very, very noisy. I want to try and find a new home but it’s quite difficult because I don’t want him to get an Asbo,” she said. (ANI)
