Workers at a transport company in Exeter, England made a surprise discovery while performing maintenance on one of their trucks -- a stowaway chicken which had made a daring escape from a nearby poultry farm.
Nathan Ferneyhough, manager at Smv Commercials, tells The Dodo that his crew was first alerted to the fugitive fowl after the driver complained about an unusual sound coming from the vehicle's engine compartment. A mechanic climbed beneath the truck to investigate the noise, only to find it was not mechanical in origin.
"As he took his torch and looked up the chicken looked down at him, he was very surprised!" says Nathan.
