Honey Boo Boo is set to ruffle some feathers with her new animal pal as she recently got a pet chicken.
The seven-year-old pageant child and TV star has christened the bird Nugget, and the pair are apparently inseparable, spending lots of their time cooped up together.
Honey Boo Boo’s mother June Shannon updated the youngster’s fans on Facebook and revealed that her daughter is very concerned with Nugget’s welfare.
June Shannon wrote: “Meet Alanas new pet NUGGET her pet chicken yes I said chicken her and nugget have became very attached this weekend.”
She went on to say that the chicken is “in the house but has a outside house too but alana refuses to let her sleep outside”.
June Shannon added that her precocious daughter ensures Nugget “sleeps inside at night in her inside cage”.
June Shannon shared a photo of Honey Boo Boo, real name Alana Thompson, proudly showing off the bird.
Sporting a Hello Kitty T-shirt, the young star clutches little Nugget to her chest as she grins for the camera in front of her cage.
The mother and daughter duo were spending the day reading Honey Boo Boo’s fan mail and June Shannon also snapped photos of her daughter plucking letters and holding them up as a token of thanks.
In an August episode of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Alana Thompson was seen having a great time with her pet pig Glitzy, popping a tiara on her.
So the seven-year-old was unsurprisingly distraught when she had to send back the pig to its breeder as it became too much work for the family to take care of.
However, it seems Honey Boo Boo is just as smitten with her new feathered friend, who may feature on her hit show when it returns for a second season.
