A British Columbia chicken earned a Guinness World Record for identifying different numbers, colours and letters.

Gabriola Island veterinarian Emily Carrington said she bought five hyaline chickens last year to produce eggs, and she soon started training the hens to identify magnetic letters and numbers.

Their job was to only peck the number or letter that I taught them to peck and ignore the other ones. Even if I add a whole bunch of other letters that aren’t the letter they are supposed to peck, they will just peck the letter that I trained them to peck.

Carrington decided to have all of her chickens attempt the Guinness World Record title for the most tricks by a chicken in one minute.

One of the chickens, Lacy, emerged as the clear winner of the flock, correctly identifying 6 letters, numbers and colours in one minute.

The focused nature of the tricks led Guinness World Records to create a new category for Lacy:
