(USA TODAY) Bereft of her pet piggy Glitzy, little reality star-baby Honey Boo Boo now has a pet chicken, which she named Nugget. Of course.

When last seen, the star ofHere Comes Honey Boo Boo, Alana Thompson, 7, was weeping copiously because Mama June Shannon had decided that Glitzy the piglet was way too much work and too noisy for her daughter and family to handle. So back to the breeder he went as HBB cried.

Now she's all smiles, judging from the pictures on herFacebookpage, as she cuddles Nugget the chicken, who doesn't look any happier than Glitzy did in the episodes of TLC's powerhouse series.

"meet Alanas new pet NUGGET her pet chicken yes I said chicken her and nugget have became very attached this weekend and it in the house but has a outside house too but alana refuses to let her sleep outside lol she she sleeps inside at night in her inside cage," went June's post on Facebook.

Apparently, Glitzy was disturbing everyone's beauty sleep by squealing for food in the middle of the night, according toPeople. It's not clear how much quieter a clucking chicken is going to be, but Honey is happy and that's all that matters.

Plus, the family might get fresh eggs eventually, which is more than Glitzy ever produced.
