This is the  shocking moment a yob shoved a live hen into the drive-through serving hatch of fast-food chain KFC.

Fowl play - yob filmed shoving live hen into KFC drive-through hatch

Footage of the prank has been posted on YouTube and the RSPCA are now examining it in a bid to catch the two thugs responsible.

The two men pulled up on a moped outside the KFC in Bermuda Park, Nuneaton, Warks., at 9.15pm on Tuesday.

The 58-second clip shows the man making clucking noises and laughing hysterically as he carries the terrified bird to the window of the restaurant.

His pal filming is giggling so much he is unable to stop the camera shaking as he shouts ”Turn round! Turn round!” to his mate holding the hen.

As the man approaches the drive-through window he stops and waits for the sliding hatch to open before shoving the hen through the gap into the restaurant.

Both men can be heard shrieking with laughter and making squawking noises as they sprint across the car park.

RSPCA inspector Helen Smith today condemned the yobs.

She said: ”It is shocking what some people find funny as it is never acceptable under any circumstances to use an animal as part of a practical joke or prank.

”These two young men were having a great laugh but it would have been a frightening experience for the hen.

”It was totally pointless and there is simply no excuse for it. I want to hear from anyone who recognises the youth from the footage.”

The man who carried the hen is described as being in his 20s, around 5ft 10ins tall with brown hair and wearing a black motorbike jacket.

The hen was taken to a vets and was unharmed by the incident and has been re-homed and named Mrs Saunders.

    You mean like getting turned into extra crispy.

    I’m sure the hen would rather be shoved in through the hatch, than out in a greasy cardboard box.

    The guy laughing sounded like a chicken himself. Couple of cowards!

    Shocking!? Planes flying into the World Trade Centre and Exploding, that was shocking. Concord going down in a ball of flames with 200 passengers, that was shocking. A chicken being lobbed through a window by a couple of idiots is really not shocking is it? And that chicken wasn’t terrified either. It wasn’t even making a sound or struggling. It was fine, move on.
