Kaley Cuoco adopted a baby mini rooster, will she regret it?


We know what a big animal lover Kaley Cuoco is. She’s adopted many pets and advocates for a couple rescues and organizations. Her latest adoption, however, is a little different. Kaley usually adopts dogs and horses. But she’s just added a tiny rooster to her menagerie. His name is Mini Cooper and he was adopted from the Lancaster Animal Care Center. Kaley posted this pic to her Instagram stories:


He’s a cute little guy. Kaley does have a ranch. I assume she kept it in the divorce. It’s a horse ranch but maybe she has some other animals there. So Mini Cooper will have company. Does Kaley know how loud roosters are, though? And that early morning crowing isn’t just a thing in cartoons. The people who I know who have chickens love them. The few I know who got roosters… don’t love them. I hope Kaley’s neighbors are far enough away not hear them. But, if she’s an early riser, it won’t bother her, and Mini C will have plenty of space to run around. He’s definitely cute. I can’t imagine what possessed her to adopt a rooster, though. Maybe it was love at first sight. Like Kaley said when she met her senior dog, Larry “when you know, you know.”

I was going to suggest Kaley get some chickens to keep Mini Cooper company, but she won’t want that unless she wants to run a chick nursery for a long time to come. And she certainly doesn’t want more roosters, or she’ll have a cacophony of crowing waking her up each morning. Maybe a pig? That’d be a cute sight. I guess her dogs could show Mini C the lay of the land. Or he could ride around on one of the horses. I’m sure he’ll become a staple on Kaley’s IG, she’s very good about keeping us up to date with her furry friends.

Apparently Mini C was pretty popular with the staff at the Care Center. They made an amazing sendoff video he got adopted. The caption read:

Thank you @kaleycuoco for adopting the teeniest, tiniest little rooster there ever was 🐣 #seenequalssaved

Mini Cooper was adored at the Lancaster Animal Care Cemter @lancasteranimalslaco and would often spend time in the offices with staff while they worked!

Everyone came out to say goodbye and send him on his way – they even packed up his favorite toy to go home with 😆.

Happy new life, cherished and adored, with a family of littles. 🙌🏻 🐖🐐🐎

Check out this goodbye video. This is a great send off! I’m going to hire Lancaster Animal Care to do the montage for my memorial when I pass on.

    chickens who are handled a lot while still young can become very affectionate pets.

    she probably won’t regret it, but the neighbors might.

  2. Willow says:

    Ahhh! She’s got a ranch and is likely prepared so the rooster will be happy. Last month I had to rehome a rooster that just showed up in my backyard. Amazingly the 2nd vet I called had a vet tech with 15 chickens who was happy to take the lost very loud rooster.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Yes and happy you rehomed a rooster. I don’t know if it’s true or not, I’ve been told that roosters will crow a lot more if there other roosters around. This little guy might be fixed? and less inclined to crow as much too. I don’t know. If she has ranch it’s a good setting for him. We have some sandhill cranes and cows nearby. You get used to the noises after awhile. Love the video.

  3. AnnaC says:

    I guess my question is how do the people who actually do most of the animal care, and live FT on the property, feel? It’s wonderful she rescues and the animals definitely have a much better life, however aside from the dog she takes with her on sets, after the big adoption social media splash her staff are the primary caregivers.

    • pottymouth pup says:

      well considering they’re paid to provide care to animals on her ranch, they probably consider it job security. she adopted a rooster, not an alligator

  4. MarcelMarcel says:

    I don’t think she will regret it. She has a ranch. And I’d assume she has staff to help her take care of her animals (given how much she loves them & how they’re all clearly well taken of).

    I wish she’d update Simon The Silly Rabbit‘s insta, he’s such a cutie! I have two Satin bunnies. Bambi and Houdini are absolutely my two besties, they give me a reason to smile every day and they’re so affectionate.

    I’d absolutely love to have an Italian grayhound. But since they are sight hounds it’d just be a total nightmare for Bambi and Houdini that could end tragically. A calm bunny is a happy bunny.

    I love how she uses her platform to advocate for adopting animals and just appreciating animals in general.✨

  5. Jenny says:

    I wonder who the ‘we’ is that she is referring too? (We adopted a tiny rooster). I thought she was separated?

  6. Mina_Esq says:

    I love the early morning crow! It reminds me of home and my childhood. It’s not that bad at all.

  7. harperc says:

    I live in a suburban neighborhood and I have chickens….. and a little mini bantam rooster.

    The crowing from the little ones aren’t that bad. It’s softer and lower pitch than full size roosters. My neighbors find it cute, fortunately. (It also helps that we all have close to an acre lots, so we are spread out; it’s not like the crowing is happening right under windows.)

    As far as other chickens go, yeah she should get more chickens for her little guy. If she gets full size hens, she won’t have to worry about more chickens, because, at least for mini bantams, biology and physics just prevents him for doing his thing. He tries, but fails, so no baby chickens.

    • MarcelMarcel says:

      Awww I love bantams! I’d love to have birds like peacocks, bantams or quails. I live on a rental property so if I have to move somewhere smaller I couldn’t take them with me. I do feel so blessed to have two sweet free roaming bunnies in my life.
      My friend’s Nan has a farm with peacocks, chickens, wild ducks, sheep, Dexter cows and a horse named Dolly. It’s much fun watching them wander around living their best life.

  8. Marigold says:

    On our horse farm, we had tons of chickens including roosters. I love their crowing. For country people it sounds good. Now I’m in the city and only have hens.

    • paranormalgirl says:

      The crowing is great. We have them at our second home. Lots of fresh eggs and only chicks when we want them

  9. Emma says:

    He’s so cute! I’m sure Kaley / staff can handle one more little guy since she has over like a hundred million dollars from TV. Chickens are great.

    You don’t need to worry about chicks either, if you collect the eggs daily and don’t leave them out in nests where hens are brooding. We had two roosters at one point for our twenty plus hens and how many bambinos do you think? Zero bambinos. (We are not rich, we just enjoy having chickens around.) Natural birth control yo! The roosters were awesome and very showy and beautiful, almost like small peacocks. They were very protective.

    Regarding noise — I’m sure she has a huge plot of land. We had under an acre and no issues with noise. Our nearby neighbor (like 500 feet down the street) has rescue roosters and they’re no problem. Of course we are in the country but we are fairly closely situated.

    Animals are not that hard to care for, once you have a sense of their natures and basic biology and needs.

    I’ve never been to America, and every now and then I read or hear something that makes me wonder what it’s really like out there. A place where people are concerned about the sound of a rooster crowing, that’s interesting!

    • BeanieBean says:

      😉 City people sometimes have trouble adjusting to country, or even suburban, life. On the island of Hawaii, people complain about the sound of the coqui frogs at night (they’re invasive); me, I like them,I find them soothing.

    • MarcelMarcel says:

      Same but I’m also woken up by native bird song, dogs etc… or hear bats at night even when I’m in the city. The thing that really mystified me was the concept of HOA til I find it out it had racist origins.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      The thing about America is that it is so varied. We have busy cities, we have rural areas hundreds of miles from the nearest city. That’s the best thing about my country, honestly. Mountains, plains, swamps, deserts, oceans, farms, cities, suburbs.

  11. Leah says:

    Yeah well I’m sure like all roosters he’s got to get his thing on at the crack of dawn.

    Her neighbors won’t be thrilled if it’s an urban chicken. Rich people complaints.

  12. BrickyardUte says:

    We adopted what we were told was a mastiff/lab mix who actually was a mastiff/dane mix. He is the second coming of Beethoven with his drool and has torn apart our backyard. But he is the sweetest and cuddliest dog who wants nothing more than to do right by his family. My boys love him (as do my husband and I) and I feel like when you adopt/rescue you roll the dice with what you get. He was meant to come to be a part of our family.

  13. Beep says:

    I have 3 roosters (and 40 some-odd hens and 3 turkeys) She can certainly get hens without “a chick nursery for a long time to come” You don’t *have* to hatch eggs, they just need gathered every day. Little bantam roos aren’t very loud. I barely hear my 3 XL roosters, and once they are in the coop you can’t hear them at all. Id imagine being on a large horse ranch, there aren’t many close neighbors and its zoned Agricultural, so it doesn’t matter anyway.

  14. BeanieBean says:

    Roosters crow any time of the day or night they want, not just first thing in the morning!

  15. Ann says:

    The thing with roosters is, they don’t just start crowing in the early morning, like at 5 or 6 AM. They start at around 2 AM and will keep going until the sun is up. And you can hear it from pretty far away! He is cute, though.

  16. so says:

    I’m exhausted just to see her getting pet after pet, husband after husband… She reminds me of an ADHD kid that gets bored too fast.
