Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are now the proud owners of another chicken, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres

This week, DeGeneres, 65, posted a photo on Instagram and explained that her chicken, Sinkie, has been rehomed after suffering a broken fibula bone. Although Sinkie is fully recovered, she was getting picked on by the talk show host’s other chickens. Thankfully, Prince Harry, 39, and Markle, 42, were kind enough to open their coop’s doors to Sinkie.

The photo offers a rare glimpse of Prince Harry and Markle’s coop, which features a large barn-like structure inside a caged fence.

“Sinkie’s leg is fixed but our chickens were still picking on her so she had to be re-homed,” the caption read. “Luckily our friends Harry and Meghan’s coop had room for one more. Not sure yet what her royal title will be.”

DeGeneres continued, “Thanks Dr. Christine Sellers for your excellent care of Sinkie.”

Followers filled the comments section with supportive messages for Sinkie’s new home. One person wrote, “So the poor chicken gets picked on and was the one that had to change homes [laughing emoji].” Another added, “Gotta love Harry and Meghan [heart emoji] I’m sure Archie and Lili will take excellent care of little Sinkie [chicken emoji].” Someone even offered a royal title suggestion: “Her Henness.”

DeGeneres also shared a video of Prince Harry and Markle’s chicken coop, featuring Sinkie pecking the ground alongside the royal couple’s other chickens. 

The caption read, “Update: Sinkie is fitting right in at her new home.”

Welcome home, Your Henness.
