"We get around 18 per day and I usually pick them up before work," Burnett said.
Burnett is a medical technologist at Lourdes in Paducah, but chickens are his passion. He has about 50 of them, both big and small.
"This is my sanctuary," Burnett said. "The chickens, the garden, the fresh air, the environment here, it is my break from all the stress I have at work."
Every once in a while, Burnett ruffles a few feathers, but his chickens actually have a pretty good life. Their chicken house is larger than some apartments and is solar-heated.
