Honey Boo Boo loves her chicken nugget – and her chicken, Nugget.

That's right, 6-year-old pageant princess Alana Thompson has found a BFF in her new pet bird.

"Meet Alana's new pet NUGGET," reads a message on Thompson's official Facebook page, which is run by Honey Boo Boo's mother, June Shannon, and a friend named Bobbie.

The Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star's new chicken seems to have filled the void left by Glitzy the pig, the pet she was forced to give away recently because he was interrupting the her beauty sleep by waking her at dawn for food. Like the tiny pig, Honey Boo Boo and Nugget have been spending a lot of time together.





"Her and nugget have [become] very attached this weekend," reads the post. "And it [is in] the house but has a outside house too but alana refuses to let her sleep outside lol she sleeps inside at night in her inside cage."

As the pint-size TLC star moves on with her new feathery friend, Glitzy has moved on, too. The petite pig, who was returned to his breeder, kept his face camera-ready by appearing on Friday's episode of Anderson Live.
