LAKELAND, Fla. — Lakeland’s Ava Hutchings has a pet you don’t often see being walked on a leash — a chicken.
"Athena," as she’s named, actually enjoys taking the walks with Ava and her entire family. She’s not at all flustered when Ava fits her with a harness and leash.
When I met them both, I asked Ava if she thought Athena, who’s also known as "Tina," likes going for walks.
"I think she does," Ava said. "Because if she’s had a long day too, maybe she likes it, too."
Turned out she liked walking with me, too.
