brightcove.createExperiences(); Kim Kardashian has died – and it is most certainly a case of fowl play.

Of course, the Kim in question was actually a chicken belonging to noted Kardashian shade-thrower Bette Midler.

The singing legend, farming enthusiast and reality TV lover, revealed to PEOPLE at Wednesday’s New York Restoration Project’s Spring Picnic that she has quite a few “chickens” at her home in upstate New York.

“We have the Kardashian sisters, actually, are our chickens,” said the Hocus Pocus star, 70, who added that she can no longer tell them apart after a tragic death years back.

Said Midler, “Kim died of a yeast infection. We had to get some different ones.”

Prior to the event, Midler has poked fun at her farming lifestyle on Twitter by posting an “amusing” meme and also referencing her Kardashian chickens.

“Spent yesterday cleaning out the chicken coop …. The hens are Kim, Kourtney and Khloé. And they’re exactly like their namesakes!”

No word on if Kim, Kourtney or Khloé have a chicken named Bette.
