Tori Spelling is always hatching new craft ideas – and some of them are landing on her pet chicken Coco.

The Craft Wars host tells Lucky Magazine that her silkie bantam chicken is a regular at the craft store, where Spelling picks up supplies for the bird's custom-made vintage fashions.

"They know her by name at our local Michael's craft store," she says. "I make her outfits to mimic my vintage dresses. She also has little capelets! I turn vintage brooches into fascinators for her."

Spelling, who is expecting her fourth child later this year, says she picks up the raw materials for many of her creations at flea markets, antique stores and estate sales, which she and husband Dean McDermott seek out every weekend with their children: Liam, 5, Stella, 3, and Hattie, 9 months.

Though her "pocket chicken" is often mistaken for a poodle, this bird will definitely be a stand out during the dog days of summer, all thanks to Spelling, who says, "Right now I'm knitting her a chicken poncho for those cool summer nights."
