It’s hard enough learning to play an instrument, but imagine doing it with only your beak!
We’ve written before about the Flock Stars, America’s best (and only) all-chicken rock band, but until now these trained chickens could only bang out a tune on xylophones and baby toys.
Now Joko, the band’s keyboard player, has proven to be a real piano prodigy, and her cover of “America The Beautiful” is proving humans aren’t the only species with musical chops.
Shannon Myers, the band’s manager and trainer, used a special clicker machine and lots of birdseed rewards to train her birds. Now, she’s upgraded to a guided keyboard that lights up, so all Joko has to do is follow along.
