$4,000 vet bill for a Pet chicken


Lilly's owners spent almost £2,000 on her injured leg before vets were forced to amputate it

When the treatment failed and the experts said Lily's leg would have to be amputated in order to save her life, Mrs Mills and her husband dug deep again to meet the costs.

Even then her medical bills were not over, as Lily was diagnosed with depression.

Being alone in the house was getting her down, so now the couple leave the television on whenever they leave their home in Cwmbran, South Wales.
