Meet Alana's Adorable New Chicken Nugget


Nugget_110712_mMove over Glitzy, there's a new pet vying for Here Comes Honey Boo Boo Alana Thompson's attention. That's because Alana's got a chicken now. Yes, that's right: A chicken.

Alana named the chick -- what else? -- Nugget, and has been attached at the beak. Thompson's mom June Shannon introduced the world to Nugget via her Facebook page. "Her and nugget have became very attached this weekend," wrote Thompson. The chicken, explained June has "an outside house, but Alana refuses to let her sleep outside." Instead, Nugget "sleeps inside at night in her inside cage."

This isn't Alana's first go at the barnyard animal rodeo. During the first season of Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, Alana was gifted a pig named Glitzy, but the pig didn't last long. "Right now, I think we've got enough pets for every boy in China," June said just weeks after getting the animal for Alana. "What's best for Glitzy is that he go back to the breeder and find a home who can devote the time to him."
