Chicken Playing Keyboard “America The Beautiful” Will Give You Goosebumps



If there is anything that will remind people that America’s strongest asset is its inclusiveness, it’s a chicken playing keyboard “America The Beautiful”.

The chicken in question is 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.

Usually, the chickens just haphazardly pluck and peck the instruments randomly. But coop co-owner Shannon Myers recently decided to see Jokgu could do something more noteworthy and play a real song.
“It took about 2 weeks to get her to this level through clicker training,” Myers told HuffPost in an email. “Just about 10 minutes to get her to peck the keys initially.”

Clicker training is a form of animal training that uses positive reinforcement to shape behavior.

“You click when the behavior is done, then reward,” Myers said. “Because you can click faster than give a reward. They immediately associate the click with the wanted behavior which then leads to reward.”
We may be reading into Jokgu’s performance, but she seemed to put extra feeling into the “amber waves of grain” part of the song.
