Chicks dig linebackers. At least, the ones living with Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller do.
The chicks in question, though, are actual chickens. In a unique move, the two-time pro bowler has purchased 38 chickens to raise on his eight-acre property near Dallas. He hopes to one day run his very own poultry company.
“Hopefully I’ll have some chicken tenders for you guys,” Miller told USA Today.
Miller plans to put his Poultry Science degree from Texas A&M to good use. In school he learned about about the science of raising chickens and also the business side of the poultry industry.
“I really wanted to get to the fundamentals, getting back to raising chicks,” Miller said. “I raised chicks in college in class and stuff. Now it’s a project for me to do it on my own, and see where I go with it. I’m pretty excited about it.”
Check out the first flock of chicks in the photo below.

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller talked about his new chicken farming business that he started. He's pretty into it.
Denver Broncos tight end Jacob Tamme is excited about the arrival of receiver Wes Welker and the Broncos offense going into the second year under Peyton Manning. Any tight end would be as Welker takes the heat off the position playing from the slot. Welker's presence prevents any double teams in the middle of the field on Tamme, giving him more room to work. Couple that with...
The Broncos Von Miller better be careful of the statements he is making. The 2013 season hasn’t even started yet and he is predicting a “far superior team. There is nothing wrong with Miller optimism. The team had a great season last year and to be superior to a 13-3 season is asking a lot. Sure, the Broncos could have done better in the play-offs, but to improve on a 13 win...

I thought since I am a fantasy football junkie, I would let you all in on my dirty little secrets when it comes to fantasy football. I have come up with 20 players that I believe could become the steal of the fantasy draft. I remember last year drafting Alfred Morris in the 18th round. I was laughed at but looked like a genius when I was in the championship. So here are a...

According to the Elias Sports Bureau via USA Today Sports, Tebow would become the second quarterback ever to never start another NFL game right after winning in the playoffs. According to the Elias Sports Bureau (via Mike Klis), Tebow would join Bob Lee, a 32-year-old quarterback...
There are some combos that work--offensive lineman and competitive eater; wide receiver and hair care products; New York Jets and circus. But did you ever expect to see sack master and chicken farmer mentioned in the same sentence?
Well, be ready--cause that is exactly Denver Broncos defensive stud Von Miller is.
Miller has founded Miller Farms, a chicken company located...
RICH GET RICHER
So, apparently Tom Brady and co. have some sort of connection to the owners of Orb, who won the Kentucky Derby yesterday. You can see Brady and his crew of former Patriots: Dan Koppen, Tedy Bruschi and Wes Welker go nuts over the win with the owners. Apparently Brady didn't want to go down to the winner's circle though, implying he probably didn't have much invested...
FOXBORO, Mass. — The minute T.J. Moe stepped on the field at Gillette Stadium to speak with the media, he was met with a question about Wes Welker.
The comparisons between the two players are obvious. Both went undrafted, both use short-area quickness and agility more than straight-line speed to get separation, both are under 6-foot (despite Moe’s generous listing) and both excel...
