WATKINS GLEN, N.Y. (AP) — The most famous chicken in New York has a new home and two more famous fans.

Less than 24 hours after settling into his new digs just up the road from the historic road course at Watkins Glen, “Little Jerry Seinfeld” welcomed his first visitors to Farm Sanctuary. Race car drivers Andy Lally and Spencer Pumpelly stopped by before the big Grand-Am Series road race at The Glen on Sunday and said they were honored to be among Little Jerry’s fans.

Lally and Pumpelly are outspoken vegans and advocates for farm animals.

Little Jerry Seinfeld achieved stardom when New York Mets relief pitcher Tim Byrdak brought the bird into the clubhouse just over a week ago as a prank after teammate Frank Francisco called the crosstown Yankees “chickens.”
