    Woman pays 1,800 for chicken leg (that's about $3,600 US)

    Woman pays 1,800 for chicken leg




    A woman from Cwmbran, Torfaen took out a bank loan and lived on beans on toast for a year to pay 1,800 in vet bills after her pet chicken injured its 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.
    Lily was also diagnosed with depression but has now recovered, said Mrs Mills. The chicken's gloominess was thought to have been brought on by being in the house alone while Mrs Mills and her husband Sam were out at work. So the couple now leave the television on all day to keep it company and it is a "happy hen again", they said.

    Is it really any wonder that chickens can be diagnosed with depression? Really, if you knew that most of your peers ended up as dinner, what would you think?

    Seriously, what's truly frightening is that someone actually went to university to learn how to diagnose depression in a chicken!
    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    YEAH, IM THE BERRIES, AND CHERRIES IN YOUR REAR VIEW MIRROR.

    Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
    Eat it, Play with it, or piss on it, and walk away!

    As smart as man is, we haven't been able to invent a machine that can smell drugs or tell us where a person has walked, Dogs are sophisticated investigative tools!

    Not even close. To the Sterling Pound, the U.S. dollar is worth about $0.49 today. So she paid about $3,600.00 for her chicken's leg.


    Hmmmm, wonder if she ate the leg for dinner.....

    For some reason, when I read the title of this thread I immediately thought of that 911 call where that woman is pissy and screaming "I want my dolla, or my taco!"

    She's probably one of those people who would leave her inheritance to the chicken, too.
