Actor Tom Holland has come up with a clucking good idea to avoid an egg shortage during the coronavirus crisis – he has adopted three chickens.

The resourceful Spider-Man actor has taken to Instagram to share the news with fans, revealing he has called his new pets Predator, Ranger, and Chestnut.

“With everything that’s going on, the supermarkets are all empty,” Holland explains. “There’s no eggs; we have no eggs. So we thought to solve that problem, we would become the source of eggs. Now, we’re the owner of chickens.”

The actor also noted he has been self-isolating at home after feeling unwell, but insists he hasn’t been infected with the COVID-19 virus.

“I woke up feeling really not really well, but I’m going to try to be a little bit more present on my Instagram during this time because I have nothing else to do,” the actor said.

Despite being under the weather, he managed to share a video of himself doing a set of push-ups on Tuesday (March 24, 2020).
