The move follows a trademark filing of the term "chicken shack" in April by a subsidiary of the chain. This news sent the restaurant's stock surging, hitting an all-time high of $96.75 on May 22. Since then, its shares have sunk. Shares received a further pounding Tuesday after Morgan Stanley analysts downgraded the stock, sending it down nearly 10 percent.

Shake Shack's foray into a chicken sandwich comes as chicken chains Bojangles' and privately held Chick-fil-A posted strong growth with poultry-packed menus.
