If you haven’t heard the story of Sammi the chicken yet, get ready to smile. Dave Cox knows that a dog is man’s best friend, but a chicken comes in a close second. After Dave’s dog Cort died last year at the age of 17, he said he wasn’t ready to take on another dog. He wanted companionship, but “something different.” Last year he walked into a feed store in his hometown of Destin, FL and walked out with a 3-day-old baby chick. Dave named her Sammi and she went everywhere with him. Sammi is a full-grown chicken now and they travel all over the Southeast. Dave started an Instagram page for he and Sammi, and they have thousands of followers. She’s changed his life and brings a smile to everyone she meets.
