Woman Pays Hefty Bill For Amputation of Chicken Leg

 

Vicky Mills, 24, was heartbroken when Lily, a Rhode Island Red, got her leg trapped in a barbed wire fence. Despite the costs, Mrs Mills told her vet to try to save the limb rather than have her put down. When the treatment failed, she paid for an amputation. Mrs Mills was given Lily, now three-years-old, when it was a two-day-old chick and she now lays up to six eggs a week for her and husband Sam.

The cost of the seven operations was “worth every penny”, said Mrs Mills, who has forsaken her holidays this year to pay the vet’s bills.

 

“I love her to bits and it would break my heart if anything happened to her,” she said.
