Pet-Spotting: Chicken on a Leash Takes a Walk in Central Park

We have seen a horse at Starbucks and a parrot perched on a table at Pier I Cafe. But a few days ago, a new animal strutted into view — Sammi the Chicken, being led around on a leash by his owner Dave.

“Dave said that Sammi is well traveled and enjoys sightseeing,” Lisa Kava wrote. “They are visiting NYC from Florida. I asked him why a pet chicken. ‘I had a dog who passed away at 17 and I wasn’t ready for another dog. I’m not a cat person so I figured why not a chicken.'”

Sammi has an Instagram account of course.

      Pretty fine for a chicken to be in a park, just keep them off my flights!

    2. LL says:

      Sammi is very cute and a much needed addition to the NYPD

    3. Lord Of The Slice says:

      If you own a chicken in NYC and didn’t name him “Little Jerry,” or “Little Yerry” you should not own a chicken in NYC.

      Am I the only one who thought this was going to be a picture of Toby Burch’s recently-found pupper?
