Yes, that's a real chicken really playing Ode to Joy (with prompting). The
chicken's name is Fuzzy. I created this video as a cute, fun video to promote
chicken intelligence. The full version of the video will be up soon. Please
see my other Chicken Piano and Training videos and read the info below them
to find out more. Please subscribe!! I have taught all of my pet chickens how
to do unique things in exchange for a treat. No, my chickens can't play
complex compositions, but they really can play simple patterns of music, with
a little bit of prompting. This vid is a parody of my pet chickens but also
shows that a chicken really CAN play the piano, and not just randomly peck at
the keys :) :D My chickens are the only chickens on the internet and possibly
the world who can actually play the keyboard--all other chickens just
randomly peck at the keys.
I got the idea to make a piano "commercial" for them after I already taught
them how to play the keyboard. The electronic music being played in the
background on my Casio keyboard is Hungarian Dances No. 5 by Johannes Brahms.
There are about one hundred songs that are stored and played automatically on
it. I am a pianist myself.
The video was edited using Windows Movie Maker.
