Summer and Lady Gaga are two chickens that live in Dallas, Texas, with their owner, Milt Strong. Together they have become celebrities and have made Texas animal news as they go for walks in a crimson stroller along Katy Trail almost every day. They walk at a brisk pace, taking in the view and passing other joggers who stop and smile. For the last five years, Milt and his chickens have become common sights along this trail, so much so that Milt has received a nickname which he readily accepts; namely, Pollo Abuelo or Grandpa Chicken.

Quadruple bypass surgery quelled his walks with the chickens for a while. The chickens were unhappy and stopped laying eggs when he couldn’t shower them with his usual attention and care. But the 69 year-old chicken man has made Texas animal news since he is back on the trail now and he’s bad. He walks with Summer only, as Lady Gaga has grown too fat to fit into the crimson stroller that has become his signature vehicle.
