Sadly, Kim the chicken died from a yeast infection.

Thanks to Bette Midler, there's a new krew of Kardashians in the world. 

While speaking to People at New York Restoration Project's Spring Picnic on Wednesday, Midler, a farming enthusiast, talked about keeping up with her brood of hens, named after TV's most famous sisters: Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. 

"We have the Kardashian sisters, actually, [they] are our chickens," the "Get Shorty" actress said, before adding that she has trouble telling them apart. (Funny, since the real Kardashian sisters also happen to look exactly the same.)

Midler also revealed that, sadly, "Kim died of a yeast infection. We had to get some different ones."

The "Hocus Pocus" star, 70, first revealed her chickens were named after the famous sisters back in 2011, when she tweeted about cleaning out the chicken coop

"Spent yesterday cleaning out the chicken coop; came out covered in chicken shit," she wrote. "The hens are Kim, Kourtney and Khloe. And they're exactly like their namesakes!"

Now, we're not sure what the reality TV sisters would have to say about being the inspiration for a few farm animals, but for some reason, we don't think they'll keep quiet.

After all, we saw how Kim reacted after Midler dissed her now infamous nude selfie
