Von Miller’s Poultry Palace | Houseguest With Nate Robinson | The Players’ Tribune


– You want to be gentle
but firm at the same time. You got it, you got it, you got it. He gonna see you. – See me play it off
like that? Like, “Yeah.” All right, let me get another. – You finally made it, baby! – I feel like if you could
drop in from the pyramid…. – Yeah. – … that’s an accomplishment. – If I don’t get this I’m
spending the night. Forever. – It’s my favorite room in the house. – Come here. I’m a little nervous! I
don’t want to break him. – “Houseguest.” We out here. Y’all know what it is,
man. I’m just pulling up. – Is he rolling up on a tractor? It’s gonna take us 30 minutes
for him to get over here, but he coming up on a tractor. – This is as fast as it goes. My guy. What’s up, baby? – Rolling up on a tractor. Hey, you got me, bro. – I stopped in Texas, and I
had to come see my bro, man. – I like it, bro. – You know how I’m saying?
How you doing, baby? – I’m doing pretty good, bro. – Thanks for having me, man.
You know what I’m saying? Sorry to pull up like that,
man, on your property, man. You know what I’m saying? – No, its all good. – We are out here in Austin, Texas. Can you tell me a little bit
about, you know, where we at? – We’re out here at Greener
Pastures Chicken, an operation that we started about a year ago. I went to college at Texas
A&M for poultry science. – Yup. – People ask me how did I get into poultry science…. – I was just about to ask you that. – Man, honestly it
started out by taking the easy class. I’m not gonna lie. But I used to fall asleep every day. I used to fall asleep every day. – So, you wasn’t a good
student in this class? – I was a good student,
but my professor, he just, he made it hard on me.
So, he would wake me up and he would make me
stand up and talk about, you know, the class in front of everybody. And, in turn, I just really
fell in love with it. It just hit me from there. It was like, “Yep, I’m gonna be a chicken farmer.” Appreciate you, Dr. Farnell. – Yeah so, we’re gonna go in here, man, and see what’s behind these
doors right here, man, if you don’t mind. We
have a special guest, you know, that pulled up on you, man. – How you doing, guys? – That’s crazy. – You know it. So its
pretty cool to, you know, have them here. So why
not surprise you with, you know, with your old professors, man. – We just want you to know that poultry science has got your back. – You know, that’s pretty cool, man. – Thank you, thank you. – It’s cool because he was just telling me how he used to fall asleep in class. – Yeah, it kind of hurts
my feelings a little bit. – And how you made him
stand up and learn about, you know, the chickens. I
wish I had a better professor like you, man. I would’ve
been in here with the chickens with y’all. You know what I’m saying? – That’s a hell of a surprise. – Word, Word. – Like I said, I appreciate
you guys for that. – How did you get into like animals, loving animals? – Just from Day One, I’ve
been hunting and fishing since Day One. I learned how
to shoot before I could write. Just being out in the woods with my dad, and going hunting and fishing,
and being around wildlife, it just created a love for livestock and all animals for me. – So does chasing around chickens have anything to do with why you
be getting so many sacks? I know that this is the trick. Chasing the chickens
around, trying to get ’em? That’s how you be getting moving around and get all them sacks, huh? – The thing is when you chasing…. When I’m chasing a chicken,
its about being patient. – Right. – You know, when I’m on a
football field I’m just trying to get from point A to
point B as fast as possible. – Right. – You know, but here on the farm I’m a little bit more
gentle. You gotta have your knees bent, you
gotta be more patient. – I think I may be more scared to pick up the chicken than anything. – You just gotta be patient. It’s like they gonna see you coming, they gonna see you coming.
You just gotta be patient. – Oh, wow. Oh, that’s O.K., you’re O.K. Look everybody quiet, like
trying to wait and see. It’s O.K. Oh, don’t
bite me, don’t pluck me. I’m gonna have to get you one, I’m gonna have to get one now. – Just be patient. – What’s up? Nah, come here, come here. Come here. Oh! I’m nervous, I’m nervous.
I don’t want to…. I feel like I don’t want to break him. – Nah, you had him. – Come here. I gotta get you. – Yup, you got it. Yup, yup. – We good. – We good, brother. – We O.K. You O.K., you O.K. All right, let me put you down. See that? Yeah. Caught
me a chicken today, guys. You O.K.? I’m sorry, I’m sorry. – Nah, you good. – I’m sorry. – This is Cameron, and he runs this Greener Pastures operation. He’s the guy that makes it go. – The welfare of the
chickens is definitely really our top priority.
Like if you took this into comparison with like a conventional chicken operation…. – Yeah. – … these chickens have
exponentially more space. This group size is never more than 2,000. – Oh, O.K., cool. – So these birds are three
and a half weeks old, and at this point we typically
start moving them out to pasture, assuming the
weather conditions are right. – So it’s an all-natural environment, it’s truly pasture-raised. – So, what is this? What
is this device right here? – This is our watering system. So basically what happens
is the chickens basically just come up to it and they just hit it. – So they just tap it and
they get a little sip. – Exactly, and then they…. – They get their hydration. – Whenever they need it,
and we have it running the full length of the
house, on both sides, so that way there’s plenty
of access for any bird that wants water at any given time. One thing that’s really
unique about this type of operation, you know … this
is regenerative agriculture. So not only do the birds get
the benefit of what’s out on the pasture, the land
actually gets the benefit of the birds being out on pasture. – You guys are doing
your thing out here, man. This is pretty cool, man, to see they just napping and chilling together. – Yeah, they all good. – Family, you know, just
chilling. This is pretty cool. – I feel like a happy bird
tastes totally different…. – Than a bird that’s stressed out? – Yeah, than a bird that’s stressed out. – We gotta get you some
so you can taste it. They taste totally different. – I gotta get some chicken.
I’m gonna taste some chicken. Can’t wait for that finger-lickin’ good chicken. I can’t wait. Talk to me about, you know, how important it was for you to, you know,
to build something like this. – You know, I didn’t want like, you know, a chicken operation
where you got, you know, we flooding birds in here
and birds getting sick, and we got all types of diseases. I wanted a humanely-raised operation. You know, I got with guys
… Paul Price, Cameron, and Dr. Farnell, and all these
guys that helped me create a wonderful chicken operation.
And we definitely created a amazing, humanely-raised,
pasture-raised product here, non-GMO. And I’m super proud of it. – Nice, this is beautiful,
man. This is awesome. So how did you get into football? – My very first memory
of a football game…. I just remember my dad
like screaming, right? He was screaming, and I’m
like, “Man, I’ve never heard, my dad sound like this.” So I went in the room, and I’m
thinking something’s wrong. And I look at him, and
he’s watching the TV. He’s screaming because the
Cowboys had just scored a touchdown. And I’m looking
at the TV, and I remember like everybody was celebrating, and running all over the field and stuff. And I was like, “I want to
make my dad scream like that. I want to make my dad
scream. I want him to scream like that for me.” I had to be
like four or five years old, and that’s when my love
for football began. – Have you ever scored a touchdown? – I’ve scored a couple of touchdowns. – A couple of touchdowns? So what was your feeling…? What was your feeling on scoring your first touchdown? Especially being a defensive guy, because it’s hella hard
scoring on defense. So when you got your first touchdown on defense, how did you feel? – Man, its amazing, bro. I’m like, “Bro, I should be playing offense.” – Every person says that
when they play defense. They always say, “Man, I
should be playing offense.” – “I should be playing offense.” I was like, “Man, they gotta see I got it. You see how easy I caught this ball, man. It’s easy. I should be playing offense.” And then for the next
two weeks you lobby up the coaches: “Hey, man,
put me on offense.” It never works, but…. – So, have you ever asked
the coach to put you like at fullback one
time at the goal line? – Every year. – Every year? And they won’t do it? – I’m going on my ninth
year and it never happens. – Ah, man. Hey coach,
if you listening to me, can you give Von Miller one handoff? Can we give him one
handoff so he can dance? So we can see him dance in the end zone? – I got it, though. I mean, I get it. Say if coach Fangio say, “Man, put Von at quarterback and let him sneak it.” And I fumble the snap, and the offense…. The other team get the ball…. – So what? But look, you back on defense. Then you back on defense. Y’all, get him back on
defense coach, you know. – Somebody gonna lose
their job right there. – Right. Nah, ain’t nobody
gonna lose their job about that. Well, listen, I got
something for you, man. First of all, you can’t
come to somebody’s crib and not bring them, you
know, a housewarming gift. You know what I’m saying? From me. But, you know, when I played
for the Denver Nuggets, you know, I got my jersey,
signed it to the Hall of Famer. – Man. Oh, my God, man.
I appreciate that, man. – I got you a jersey, man. I don’t know if you got, you know. – That’s love, fam. – Why not Denver, you know?
You play for Denver, so…. – Yeah, this definitely
going up in the basement. – Yeah, facts. Facts, man. – For sure, for sure. – I just wanted to give you
that, something you could have. You know what I’m saying?
Today has been awesome. Pulled up in a tractor …
I mean, guys, come on, man. I mean, you gotta bring
Von Miller a jersey. – Appreciate it. You just pay
attention in class one time. – One time. – I paid attention in class
one time and I got all this. – And then look at it.
You know what I’m saying? It’s been cool, man. Thank you. – Thank you, appreciate you. – ♪ Well, I’m gonna take my
horse to the old town road. ♪ ♪ I’m gonna ride till you can’t no more. ♪ ♪ I got the horses in the back. ♪ Hey, this is the perfect song for this.

  1. I like watching Houseguest, but why they showing actually nothing? One room in Ty's house, skate pool in Tony's backyard, only cars in Rozay's mansion. I don't see sense in this show.

  2. "Chicken Science" Sounds like a term made up by the Trump administration to deny the allegations brought up against them. 😂
