Not all of us are early risers, and even the best alarm clocks can’t propel us to get up bright and early in the morning. But maybe if we had an adorable, eager hen whose mission was to wake us up every day, we would try a little bit harder.

To our sheer envy, Japanese Twitter user @17Marimo’s sons get that delightful privilege. Because whenever @17Marimo tells Piyo-chan, their pet hen, to “wake the boys up,” she waddles up the stairs and gives out a splendent cry of cock-a-doodle-doo.

At 3 years and 5 months old, Piyo-chan has made her place in the family as not just an endearing alarm clock, but also an excellent cuddle buddy. And though she's been busy waking up her human siblings since 2015, when she’s done with her day’s job, she spends the rest of her time living happily with her family.
