This precious viral video of a little boy lovingly embracing a chicken is proof that any animal can be capable of love and companionship.
The boy is 6-year-old Mason, and the chicken is a hen named Love Bird, and they were both raised on Rifle Creek Ranch in Las Vegas, NV. The two are unlikely best friends, but the bond between them is apparent. She wakes Mason up in the morning and greets him with a hug when he comes home from school each day.
Despite her name, Love Bird wasn't always so loveable. As a chick, she was aggressive and pecked anyone who tried to get near her. "We were all about to give up on her, except for Mason," writes the bird's owners on Love Bird's Facebook page. "He gave her the time and love she needed for her to develop into the Love Bird she is today."
