Mets find farm for 'Little Jerry Seinfeld' chicken
PETALUMA, Calif. -- Tim Byrdak and the New York Mets have given new meaning to baseball's farm system.
Thanks to the Mets' wacky reliever and a successful Twitter search, the most famous chicken in New York is headed to its new home. And surely, "Little Jerry Seinfeld" will be much more comfortable on a farm upstate than it was in the clubhouse at Citi Field.
All the fun started last week, when Mets closer Frank Francisco called the Yankees "chickens." Of course, that made for cartoonish tabloid headlines in the Big Apple leading up to the Subway Series.
As a prank, Byrdak, the Mets' resident joker, brought a live chicken into the clubhouse before Friday night's series opener, clucking up his teammates.
Then he realized he had to find it a new home.
