The stars discovered a mail order company that sends chicks through the post, and decided to invest in six of the birds, as a project for their two children.
Huffman explains, "You order them through the mail. It's called My Pet Chicken.
"You get little chicks in a box. We now have six chickens. In six months they'll lay eggs."
And she reveals the new pets have inspired Macy to embrace his creative side: "Bill has built the coop. It's such a great coop, it makes you want to be a chicken."
