Honey Boo Boo replaces pet pig, gets chicken named Nugget

By Mallory Hatten,

Alana Thompson, star of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, has taken in another eccentric pet – a chicken named Nugget – after saying goodbye to her beloved pet pig named Glitzy.

E! News reports that the seven-year-old TLC reality star’s mama, June Shannon, shared a picture on Facebook of the pageant princess holding on to her new feathered friend. And just in case you thought you misread, Mama June assures that “yes” she “said chicken.”

“Meet Alana’s new pet NUGGET,” Shannon wrote. “Her and nugget have became very attached this weekend…”

Mama June also revealed that the clucking bird “has a outside house too but alana refuses to let her sleep outside.” Instead, Nugget “sleeps inside at night in her inside cage.”

Only time will tell if Alana’s new pal is here to stay for good. During the first season of the show, Honey Boo Boo had to bid farewell to Glitzy, returning him to the breeder after he proved to be too much for the Shannon family to handle.

Here’s to hoping that Nugget passes the test!
