Did you know chickens do stuff like this? I did not. I have never heard of a chicken showing such affection to a human before. She stays for such a long hug, it’s almost like she has a human heart in there. Like she thinks she’s his girlfriend or mother.
This lovely chicken sees her favorite little boy and rushes up for a hug, but something’s wrong!
Apparently chickens can be quite smart birds, and some very loving too, as we can see. To me it is equally heartwarming to see a child’s genuine compassion for animals, something well worth cherishing and encouraging.
Ducking out from his familiar embrace, the appropriately named Love Bird darts around behind him to investigate his new haircut. Does he pass her ins-PECK-tion? (Sorry, I had to do that).
Seems like she approves…
Aside from the adrorable long hug Love Bird stays for from this sweet, animal-loving little boy, you have to laugh at how put-out Mr. Rooster is getting. Mason has to push the jealous rooster back! Watch the whole video below.
