LONDON: Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon spent $1,200 to get a chicken's broken leg fixed.

The 33-year-old actress splashed out the staggering sum after her children Ava, 10, and six-year-old Deacon were left devastated by the bird's injury.

"Reese wasn't too broken up about the bird's injury, figuring it would be best to have it put down. But the kids couldn't stop crying, so she rushed it to a veterinary," said a source.

The chicken was injured on the family's ranch in California. Sat Sep 26 2009 13:59:10 GMT-0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)
