PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - Tens of roosters who mysteriously appeared in Portland are now available for adoption through Multnomah County Animal Services.

The flock of fowl appeared in Portland’s Pearl District Saturday night and their owner hasn’t claimed them, the animal shelter says.

Portland police and Oregon Humane Society personnel sheltered the 40 roosters in place over the weekend.

The animals were then brought to Multnomah County Animal Services.

The shelter hope to find the roosters loving homes in rural areas where the birds aren’t prohibited. They say the roosters are young (without spurs), friendly and live well together, the shelter says.

People interested in the animals do not have to adopt the entire flock.

Photos of the roosters are posted to the Multnomah County Animal Services website. The shelter notes most areas within city limits in Multnomah County prohibit the animals.
