Earlier this month, CCTV footage captured a brood of hens surrounding an Amazon driver as he delivered a package to a home in British Columbia, Canada.
You've heard of guard dogs, but how about guard chickens? This Amazon delivery driver had no idea what he was in for when he delivered a package to one family's house in Canada. And as you're about to see in this hilarious video, it's clear that these guard hens really do rule the roost.
Be sure to reach the end of this article to see the full video :-)
This video begins with an Amazon delivery driver walking up to a house in British Columbia, Canada. The yard was scattered with chickens, but if he was like most delivery drivers, he probably didn't think much of it.
Many of us know someone with chickens and roosters in their yard. Usually, they're fairly harmless, and if you walk toward them they start to scatter. But this house was different. And this man had no idea that he was about to be the star of a hilarious viral video.
The Amazon driver walks up to the front door with the package in hand. When he rings the doorbell, a flock of chickens immediately runs up to the entrance. One chicken even jumps on the stairs like it's trying to greet him. Still, they're fairly skittish: when he makes a sudden movement, they all jump and scatter.
These chickens aren't going anywhere
He turns back to the door and waits for the owners to come out and accept the package. Meanwhile, the chickens are still running around the yard and looking at him expectantly. They gather in front of the steps and stare at him like he's some kind of chicken god. When the owners don't answer, he finally places the package on the doorstep and starts to walk back to his car.
Of course, the chickens weren't about to make it easy for him. They gather around him like they're trying to stop him from leaving.
When he reaches his vehicle, the floodgate bursts open! A horde of chickens comes rushing up to the delivery driver. When he opens the door, they jump back and circle around the front of the vehicle. It's clear that these chickens did not want this man to leave!
These chickens were probably hungry for treats
At first glance, it looks like these chickens were trying to guard their property and chase a stranger away from the entrance. But as one online commenter pointed out, they probably thought he had treats in his pocket. After all, when their owners come outside, they probably have seed or treats for the chickens.
Still, this video is hilarious no matter how many times you watch it. We're glad that the family had a security camera that allowed them to record this eventful outing. We hope that they rewarded the chickens afterward by giving them lots of seed!
The video quickly went viral
This video has gone viral around the world and been picked up by major media outlets like the Daily Mail. It's racked up thousands of views and hundreds of comments and delighted audiences in multiple countries.
It's incredible how a simple thing like a video of a bunch of chickens can make people smile. We don't know what the delivery driver thinks about all this, but we hope he's enjoying his time in the spotlight.
