Aw what a sweet story! I wonder how she gets around?
Whew! I thought Chicken Matthews' amputated wing was expensive! That's about 3500 US dollars!
I would presume that she would hop with just the one leg...
I liked that the Good commenters outweighed Peter...LOL
what a touching story. My hen came to me with severe scaley leg mite and only had the use of one leg. She got around great on one leg.
i love chickens but i dont think i would ever do that. was that really a rhode island red? to me it didnt look like it.
Uh... yeah, that's not a RIR...
I wouldn't spend that much on a single chicken either.
We were faced w/ vet bills in the hundreds (US, not pounds) and we said No. I adore my babies and would crying plaintively if I were to lose one. But its a chicken.
I did try to bargain w/ myself. "OK, if i give $500 to a food charity in Africa maybe I can justify spendng $200 on a chicken..."
That bird looks like a rooster to me?? It's waddles are bigger than a hen's.....or ????? do a hen's waddles get that big???
I just looked at the exchange rate. 1.99 US to 1.00 GBP. That's a $4000 vet bill.
My grandmother who passed away last month always had a number of house cats. At any given time she had 8 to 10 of them in the house. She had a thick photo album of all the cats she had cared for since she was a little girl, probably 100 cats in there. She never had any names by the photos, but she would go through the album and point each one out by name.
One time one of the cats went into convulsions and she took it to the local vet. They almost lost the cat. It turned out that my grandmother went to the cupboard for flea powder and ended up dusting the cat with a can of carpet cleaner. The vet went to great lengths to save the cat including performing cpr on it. My grandmother told him that she appreciated it, but that it was only a cat...
