“Very early this morning, this chicken was caught spying on security at the Pentagon (we’re not kidding) and our officers were called in to pick her up.
“Sergeant Ballena has taken her safely to the shelter where she will stay until we find a new home for her!
“We now need a name for her – suggestions welcome!”

The winning name is Henny Penny, recommended by many people.
The chicken got so much attention that Jimmy Fallon even performed a bird song on his show.

“Well, Henny Penny is officially famous – last night, Jimmy Fallon performed a song about her on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!
“Henny Penny is so honored that he wrote a song about her!
“She loves it…but she has some sense of the BBQ sauce line-up as you can see. But she said she’s going to let that go.”
