Spider-Man Star Tom Holland Adopted Three Live Chickens to Deal With COVID-19 Egg Shortage

COVID-19 has been hard on us all. Not only has the spread of the novel coronavirus forced people to stay at home and self-quarantine, the anxiety that's come with the pandemic has also made the public to go on panic-buying sprees.

With so many people hoarding toilet paper, alcohol, canned goods, and other necessities, it comes as no surprise to hear that there's been a shortage of eggs in supermarkets in the UK. Marvel's Spider-Man star Tom Holland has experienced this shortage first hand, and it looks like the actor has a pretty nifty solution to the egg supply – by getting his own chickens.

Taking to Instagram, the Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home star decided to share his own COVID-19 experience. Apparently Holland has been having trouble finding eggs at the supermarket, and so the actor's revealed that he adopted some chickens instead.

The Marvel star decided to document the entire chicken adopting process on his Instagram story, and it looks like everyone is loving his intuitiveness.


"With everything that's going on, the supermarkets are all empty and there's no eggs. We had no eggs. So, we thought, to solve that problem, we would become the source of eggs – and now we're the owners of chickens," the actor said in his video.

Holland now has three chickens. One is named Chestnut, the other is Ranger, and the other Predator.

Honestly, hearing that Holland decided to adopt three chickens so he can get some eggs gives everyone something to chuckle about in this time of crisis.
