Jokgu the chicken is going viral with her rendition of “America the Beautiful.” Check it out to see why:

As for how her co-owner Shannon Myers actually got Jokgu to learn a tune, it took a two weeks of training, according to the Huffington Post.

Myers used a clicker and feed to reinforce Jokgu’s behavior and found the clicker to be especially vital.

She explained, “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.”

Light cues also help Jokgu pick out the correct keys in the correct order.
