As the animal curiously pecks the cup, her owner says, ‘try it! No, no, no. In. Sweet Pea, up,’ as she guides the animal to drink the iced coffee. 

The chicken pecks at the liquid a few times before seemingly enjoying it and going back for seconds.  

Theresa said: ‘Sweet Pea often tries the food or drinks that I am having. This video was just an example of that. I think she enjoyed it!

‘Sweet Pea is doing well after trying the coffee and, although caffeine can be harmful to birds, she only consumed a small amount and was not caused any harm.’
