"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."£1,800? I don't spend that much on my computer... Hell, that's more than I spent on my first CAR.
"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."
How do you diagnose a chicken with depression, exactly? It's a CHICKEN. It should be cock-a-hoop (excuse the pun) that it's not being SLAUGHTERED AND EATEN.
"The couple have taught one-legged Lily party tricks like keeping her balance as she stands on Mrs Mills' head."Gosh, their parties must be absolute RIOTS...
