Honey Boo Boo is the proud new owner of a pet chicken named Nugget.
But PETA wants to make sure the seven-year old beauty queen understands: Nugget is only meant to serve as a pet, not a meal.
"As I'm sure you are learning from your chicken, chickens are smart, interesting animals with personalities of their own," reads a letter written by PETA rep Michelle Cho and posted by E! News.
The organization goes on to outline how well chickens do math and have good memories, making a few suggestions to young Alana Thompson in the process.
