Sinky (Bird)

Breed: Chickcen

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi have a chicken named Sinky. DeGeneres said Steve Carell gave the chicken its name after seeing the photos of it sitting in a sink. DeGeneres posted videos of Sinky to Instagram in late December 2023. DeGeneres shared that Sinky was recuperating in the sink as she was injured. And that Sinky had a broken fibula and the sink was no longer best for her recovery. So Sinky ended up needing four weeks to recover in a special chicken clinic.

Jinx and Monkey (Cat)

Adopted Mar 2023

Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi adopted two rescue cats named Jinx and Monkey in March 2023. Here they’re seen watching the 2023 Oscars with Ellen.
