    Ok, I've seen on Animal Planets Funniest Animals where a chicken would peck at a little kids piano and make it sound! Does any of you all have a chicken that can do this? And if so please post pics.! I thought that was so funny! [​IMG]

    Probably not exactly what you were looking for, but a barnyard critter playing piano none the less. [​IMG]


    And a link to a video, which doesn't have sound so loses much of the hilarity of watching him do it in person. You'll have to imagine. [​IMG]

    I taught my horse to play a piano, honk a horn, bowl (yes, as in knock over bowling pins) and dunk a little nerf basketball into a little net using clicker training, give kisses and all sorts of other little tricks. and plan on doing the same with one of our chickies using the same method. I don't see why it wouldn't work with a chicken as well.

    Here he is several years ago, just learning to bowl (so started with only a few pins). He now has his own "real" set from the bowling alley. [​IMG]

    Here are a couple of links, you can find TONS more info by doing a google search. It's all about the timing!
