cyrusWhile filming the epic Hannah Montana: The Movie, star Miley Cyrus apparently noticed that some movie-set chickens were looking sad and wanted to do something about it. Miley’s co-star Jason Earles, told Fox News that she grabbed a box, filled it with straw, swiped a chicken, and talked her mom into taking it home. From the article,

“Miley picked it up thought it was real cute and decided she needed to save this chicken. So she put it in a cardboard box with some pine straw and got her mom to take it home,” co-star Jason Earles told Tarts. “She is funny with animals — she was like ‘I have to have that chicken’. She falls in love like you wouldn’t believe.” The sweet 16-year-old admitted she actually stole “a few” chickens but it was because “they were sad to be working.”

As Cele|bitchy notes these were probably a.) union chickens and b.) under the care of a chicken wrangler. More than likely, the young star was given the bird. In terms of chickens and “looking sad” — as Ira Glass found out, there may be some truth to that. After a visit with Karen Davis, president of United Poulty Concerns, he discovered that chickens do indeed have personalities — and became a vegetarian promptly after.

And is it me or does one chicken not neccessarily mean a happy chicken? Isn’t the recommended number for any homestead something like six?
