Ybor City chicken breaks $1,200 worth of glass pipes in CBD shop
YBOR CITY, Fla. — Why did the Ybor City chicken cross the road? Probably not to get stuck in a CBD shop window and break more than $1,000 worth of glass pipes.
It happened on Sunday, according to Carlos Hermida, owner at Chillum CBD and Glass Gallery.
“The poor chicken felt trapped and was scared. It’s safety was a major concern. It could have gotten seriously hurt by the broken glass,” said Hermida.
Surveillance video from inside the shop shows the chicken wander in and make its way to the front window display. There it seems to get trapped and in the panic, it breaks some of the glass pieces that were on display.
“Unfortunately, it broke about 1.2K worth of glass art, fortunately it eventually walked out of the store unharmed!,” Hermida said.
The shop says it sells high end pieces of glass art that also function as pipes for $400 to $1,000.
Ybor’s chickens are a staple in the historic district, they even have a community organization dedicated to them! The Ybor Chicken Society started several years ago, but became a “full-fledged community organization” in 2017.

TAMPA, Fla. – One of Ybor City’s infamous chickens caused more than a thousand dollars in damage at a CBD shop.
The chicken walked into the Chillum CBD Dispensary and Glass Gallery in Ybor. When a worker tried to shoo it out, the bird went wild.
It’s hard to see in the surveillance video above, but the chicken ended up knocking over and breaking several glass pipes, worth about $1,200.
“These are German pipes,” owner Carlos Hermida explained. “When I order them, they usually take four months to get here. She broke a few of them.”
Hermida says he’ll have to foot the bill since there’s no such thing as chicken insurance.
