This Adorable Video Of A Little Girl Grooming A Chicken Has Gone Hugely Viral

As cluck would have it.

In all honesty, this is simply a video of a little girl in Brazil grooming and pampering her pet chicken. But for a myriad of good internet reasons, it's the best thing you'll see all day.

Flavia Leão told BuzzFeed she's a full-time relationship coach who also owns a farm of animals. She captured her 5-year-old daughter giving one of their chickens a pretend makeover one day after it rained.

Leão told BuzzFeed the animals on their farm are all treated like family members — particularly by the kids.

"My animals are all treated like sons," she said (translated from Portuguese). She adds that the chickens are receptive and "meek."


Leão says she's astonished how this video has gone so quickly and hugely viral. Because this kind of friendship and care the family gives to their farm animals is completely normal for them.

"I just can't believe it yet," she said of the video's success. "We go to the farm every weekend, and every animal has a name. That's normal for me!"


IMPORTANT UPDATE — Our chicken-friend, Mango, is expected to have chicken-babies soon.

"Little Mango (Manguinha) is gonna be a mom next Sunday!" Leão writes.
