Jenita Myers aka The Chicken Lady, Key West
“I dress like a chicken and I carry my chicken cart every day when I get off work and go around the island feeding the chickens, the pigeons, and the feral cats on the Island (Key West).
They are just babies and I enjoy it. It’s unconditional love. No one hollers ‘You did this’, or ‘You did that’, it’s unconditional’ they are just absolutely happy to see me every day.When I pull in down at the other end of the lot, they fly to me. When I leave here I go to Five Guys and the pigeons will be there waiting for me.
I have been doing this for almost 4 years. Sometimes we get donations, but mostly me and my husband buy everything.
They (the birds) all have names and I can tell you who’s birthday is who’s, and who is related to who. I have seen all the generations.”
HOK – “Because the question is always asked, I did too!”
