Japanese Pianist Plays Classical Pieces with a Pet Chicken Resting on Her Head

Chickens can often seem highly energetic, running around, pecking, and whatnot. But it turns out that they can also be quite calm when needed.

A Japanese pianist named Aya recently shared an interesting video on TikTok in which she plays a classical piece on a piano while her pet chicken, Piinaccho, sits on her head. Piinaccho is surprisingly calm, being completely immersed in the composition. Another chicken can also be seen resting by Aya’s feet and also carefully listening.

While some TikTok users were impressed with Aya’s piano skills, others were more intrigued about the chicken. 

“At first I thought, ‘You’re wearing a strange hat.’ Again, ‘Something’s moving’,” one TikTok user commented.

“This is a wonderful video that will make you fantasize about being manipulated by a chicken on your head to play the piano, “another added.

As it turns out, this is something Aya does on a regular basis. Her TikTok profile is full of videos showing her playing the piano surrounded by her chickens or having one sit on her head. You can check out more of them if you scroll below.
