The 45-year-old actress is mourning the loss of her pet poultry Regina George, who has died "from natural causes" aged just eight months.

Jennifer wrote on Instagram: "Please enjoy this tribute to Chicken Regina George who passed away from natural causes. [Chicken emoji] #shewasourfavorite #RIP #shelivedagoodlife (sic)"

The 'Miracles from Heaven' star posted a touching video tribute to Regina, which showed Jennifer giving her clucking pal a stroke, taking her for a walk on a lead, and also featured a picture of the unlucky clucker's grave plaque.

It read: "R.I.P. Regina George. July 9 2017 - March 20, 2018 (sic)"

Jennifer - who has kids, Violet, 12, Seraphina, nine, and six-year-old Samuel with husband Ben Affleck - has several pet poultry and has previously dubbed herself the "chicken lady"

She once wrote alongside a picture of herself walking Regina: "If there isn't a Chicken Lady Day , there really should be. Man, my life gets more exciting all the time.

"-- --

"Meet one of our ladies, Regina George. Regina loves long walks, dehydrated bugs, and kale. Regina hates....carbs.

Jennifer named her chick after the 'Mean Girls' character of the same name played by Rachel McAdams.

As well as her love of chickens, Jennifer also has a pet golden retriever pooch Birdie, who she sometimes reads bedtime stories to.

She took to her Instagram over the weekend to share a video of herself reading a book to her puppy, and encouraged others to do the same with their four-legged friends.

Jennifer wrote: "It's never too early to introduce a little one to the fun of books-- even if you have to skip pages. Even if they make you work for it. Even if you ignore the words for a picture walk. I have about seventy eleven million favorite board books, but here are a few that are perfect to #readtoyourpups (sic)"
