Amanda Seyfried’s chickens are called Julia Roberts, Debra Winger & Candice Bergen

One of the best dresses we saw that a celebrity would have worn to the About Time-themed canceled Met Gala, was on Amanda Seyfried. It was a Little House on the Prairie-looking dress, complete with a vintage floral print, ruffles and contrasting white sleeves, neckline and hem. (That’s below) The thing that made the dress look so pretty and on theme was the setting she chose to show it off. She posed in her chicken coop while holding a chicken she called “Candace.” [sic] Amanda and her husband of three years, Thomas Sadoski, have a little farm in upstate New York, where they live with their three-year-old daughter. Amanda and Thomas have never revealed her name. In a new interview with Access Hollywood to promote the widely-panned Scoob animated movie release (I can’t with these Scooby Doo movies that look nothing like cartoons), Amanda talked about her daughter without saying her name, but she did give the names of some of her chickens. They’re named after celebrities!

Amanda has six hens and one rooster
[One is called Candice Bergen]. There’s a Julia Roberts in there and a Debra Winger.

She loves playing dress up with her daughter and buys matching outfits
We have dress up. We have a lot of dress up stuff. I have Victorian dresses that I buy. My daughter has all her princess gowns and we just play dress up all the time.

On if her daughter will watch this movie
She knows about it we have little toys around. She’s three so it’s the perfect age I think. She’s going to watch it over and over again.

[From Access Hollywood]

“She’s going to watch it over and over again.” I remember that age so well. It’s sweet that she likes dressing up with her daughter. I would absolutely love that, because dressing up is one of my favorite things to do. (I miss Goodwill shopping so much, but at least my collection is big enough to entertain me at home.) That’s cute that she named her chickens after Hollywood stars! What is the rooster named though? I bet it’s George Clooney.

My friends with chickens tell me they all have unique personalities, so you know that the Julia chicken is a snotty diva who tries to rule everyone and Candice is the fun social chicken who gets along with the rest of the coop. I wonder if it’s super annoying having a rooster. Everyone I know who has chickens has chosen not to keep a rooster because they’re loud. I bet Amanda lives far enough in the country that her rooster doesn’t bother the neighbor’s though. Over the weekend I read this tweet thread from a lady who moved to Nigeria and was dealing with a very loud rooster next door. It’s worth reading for the ending, unless you’re opposed to meat-eating, which I am not.

    Savannah, GA right here too. There are 2 roosters nearby in my neighborhood (one in the yard right behind me) and they drive me insane. In fact I can’t think of any part of the city I’ve lived in without a rooster.

    • Swack says:

      My daughter has 10 chickens, no roosters. We live in an unincorporated area of the county and roosters are not allowed.

      • David says:

        Is it in IOH? I’m ok with the chickens. The neighbors behind me have plenty but those roosters. I don’t think they ever sleep because they go all day.

    • Joanna says:

      Wow! We had one in our neighborhood and it drove me crazy! Guess it’s gone now, haven’t heard it. It sucks that you have one right behind you

    We had a rooster years ago (he just showed up one day so we let him stay) and he was cool at first, very friendly, but once he got bigger he turned into the biggest territorial a- hole and was super mean. We lived on a nice piece of property back then, lots of space for him to be “free range.” The last straw was when he came at me with his talons, wings flapping as I was trying to leave for work one morning. Oh, the stories I could tell about that little prick lol.

    Finn! He’s such a good boy!

    What a beautiful dog!

    Some hipster townies moved in about 2 miles away to homestead. They have a rooster that cockadoodledoos all hours of the day.


    I miss Good Will and thrift shopping, too! I’m big into recycling clothes- this is the longest my closet has stayed static for awhile haha. I’ve been wondering what will happen to set ups like that after coronavirus. A lot of people I know already turn their nose up at clothes from Good Will and thrift stores. Now it might actually be unsafe. But the people who judge others for wearing “used” or “secondhand” clothes are just snobby. Like I’m sorry I have a thing for 50s vintage house dresses and that’s an inch Target just isn’t gonna scratch.

    Believe it or not, there are still places in New York City where people have chickens, usually in areas with a large population of recent immigrants. I used to live in a neighborhood with two wholesale livestock places; there was a halal (muslim) one on my block that sold chickens, lamb, goats, etc, and sometimes I’d have to step over animal blood in the gutter on my way to the subway in the morning. Anyway, at one point one of their roosters must have escaped and unfortunately he was confused about the idea of “morning,” and would start crowing while it was still dark, maybe 3-4 am.
    Also Amanda’s dog looks so sweet.

    I’m in lockdown with my parents and they just got 13 chicks. I’m praying that none are male (they were guaranteed 90% female) but last time they got chicks when I was a kid they ended up with 7 roosters and only 4 hens! And of course by the time you could tell what they were my mom was attached and refused to get rid of them. 7 f-ing roosters crowing at 4 in the morning, I can’t go through that again!

  8. schmootc says:

    I grew up on a farm in Southern Idaho. My Mom always had chickens and I remember going into the coop to feed them when I was a kid and the rooster used to chase me. Scared the beejesus out of me. Damn rooster was probably almost as big as I was.

  9. Alarmjaguar says:

    Another reason not to want a rooster if you have hens is they might fertilize the eggs. Easier to collect and eat if they aren’t growing chicks.
