(CNN/Meredith) --  Don't ask Loretta the chicken why she crossed the road.

She went by paddleboard instead.

Loretta's human, Karly Venezia, says water sports are quite popular in her home state of Florida.

"Loretta seems to enjoy water-related activities. In addition to paddleboarding, we've taken her out boating for sunsets and she always seems to have a great time."

Venezia says the one-year-old Rhode Island Red likes to chill on the front of the board during rides.

"Paddleboarding is very calming and I like hanging out with Loretta. She's an awesome pet to have. So for us I think coming out here and getting to enjoy the beautiful sunsets is what makes living in the Keys so special."

Wild chickens roaming the streets are common in the Florida Keys but not on paddleboards.
