Life's a lot like Animal House
at the Spelling-McDermott home – literally!
Just weeks after taking the family goat
for a walk, Tori Spelling
stepped out on Monday in Sherman Oaks, Calif., with her pet chicken Coco in hand. The daytime stroll marked Coco's first foray into the spotlight, but Spelling hasn't been shy about flaunting her feathered friend on Twitter. "How stunning is my chicken COCO?" she Tweeted
on Feb. 5.
And it seems the cute critter has quickly become an important part of the Spelling-McDermott clan, with the reality star also writing, "My friend Chris said 'Coco is the new Mimi La Rue!'", a reference to Spelling's beloved pet pug
who passed away in 2008.
"Sometimes ya just gotta bring your chicken to work," Spelling Tweeted
on Feb. 4 – and we couldn't agree more. Here's hoping for more Coco sightings in the weeks to come! See more celebrity pets on PEOPLEPets.com:Dr. Oz's Dog Is a Kitty MasseuseCarrie Preston and Michael Emerson are Little Dog People
