In this video posted on Youtube by user , this brilliant, talented chicken uses its beak to peck keyboard keys and perform, quite possibly, the best version of “America the Beautiful” we’ve ever heard.
The chicken follows a red light as it appears under different keys, signalling which one to peck next. The patriotic pecker is named Jogku, and is a 19-month-old Brahma Bantam who lives in Germantown, Maryland.
Jogku was taught to play the song by ‘clicker training,’ a form of positive reinforcement training that shapes behavior. It took about two weeks to get her to play this song.
The end result, posted online by ‘Two Creative Chicks’ is a heartwarming rendition of the classic song as done by a talented chicken.
