Washington (Web Desk): Have you ever seen a chicken playing keyboard piano?… definitely not.
But here you can watch a remarkable chicken’s beautiful performance of ‘America The Beautiful’ – US’s patriotic song – in an amazing video will give you goosebumps.
The chicken named “Jokgu,” and she’s an 19-month-old Buff Brahma Bantam who lives in a coop in Germantown, Maryland, that is stocked with toy musical instruments.
Myers informed HuffPost in an email, “It took about 2 weeks to get her to this level through clicker training”. “Just about 10 minutes to get her to peck the keys initially.”
Clicker training is a form of animal training that uses the method of positive reinforcement to shape behavior.
Myers said, “You click when the behavior is done, then reward… Because you can click faster than give a reward, they immediately associate the click with the wanted behavior which then leads to reward.”
Watch Jokgu’s performance where she seemed to put extra feeling into the “amber waves of grain” part of the song.
