There’s a chicken out there that’s single and ready to mingle. In fact, this chicken is so eligible that it’s been dubbed the world’s most eligible bachelor.
The chicken, who goes by the name of Mr. Clooney, is a one-year-old Rhode Island Red that lives on a farm in England. Mr. Clooney was recently put up for auction on the online marketplace eBay, where he was described as “the world’s most eligible bachelor.”
The auction started at $155 and quickly rose to $400, but the bidding stopped there and Mr. Clooney was ultimately sold for $1,025. The lucky lady who won the auction is reportedly a farmer from Scotland who plans to keep Mr. Clooney as a pet.
While $1,025 may seem like a lot of money to spend on a chicken, it’s worth noting that Mr. Clooney is no ordinary bird. In addition to being dubbed the world’s most eligible bachelor, Mr. Clooney is also said to be “very friendly” and “good with children.” He also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
So, if you’re in the market for a pet chicken or are just looking for a little bit of companionship, Mr. Clooney may be the bird for you. Just be prepared to shell out a pretty penny for the privilege.
