Jennifer Aniston and fiancé Justin Theroux are the proud parents of 17 adorable chickens.

The actress, 46, chatted with PEOPLE about her unusual collection of clucking pets, including why it’s so hard to name chickens.

“We attempted to do that, but there are 17 of them now,” Aniston said about trying to remember which chick is which.

“I’ve lost track because they all look alike!” she continued.

There are two superstar chickens blending in among the feathered bunch.

“We did get two baby chicks as a gift named Justin and Jen,” Aniston said about the recent additions to her Bel Air abode.

While these farm animals don’t pay rent to live at Aniston’s lush estate, being cooped up with 17 chickens does have its perks.

“We use the eggs every day. We make frittatas, carbonara. Justin makes great pasta. I use the eggs in my salad or for snacks. They taste delicious!”
