Have you been having a really hard week? Maybe the stress of school or work has been getting you down, and you've come into the weekend feeling emotionally exhausted from the weight of it all, in need of a little bit of a heartwarming pick-me-up.

If that's the case, you'll be happy to know you're about to see more chickens wearing tutus than you've probably ever seen in your entire life. And if that's not enough to put a smile on your face, then I don't know what will.

Bored Panda has expertly compiled a collection of some of the most elegant tutu-sporting chickens the internet has to offer. So sit back, relax, and get ready to have your heart melted into a puddle by these little cuties. And because we're all about feeding minds here at Diply, I'll be adding some helpful chicken facts and jokes for your reading pleasure along the way. You're welcome.

Chickens can remember over 100 faces of people or animals they come across.

So next time you come across a chicken and you think it's giving you a funny look, it's probably because you've crossed paths before and it's trying to remember your name because isn't it just so awkward when you know you know someone but their name is just completely gone from your head?

Chickens are good with faces but no one ever said they're pros at remembering names.

What do you get when you cross a chicken with a bell?

An alarm cluck.

Also, can we take a moment to appreciate that this little chick looks like it's wearing a cupcake liner and there has never been anything cuter ever pictured before in the history of mankind?

The earliest known printing of “Why did the chicken cross the road?” was in 1847 in a New York Magazine.

And I'm sure at that time the joke was so fresh that those New Yorkers who got to read it first fell off their chairs laughing at its absurdity.

Whereas nowadays the joke is so stale that we need reinventions to even give the tiniest chuckle, such as: "Why did the rooster cross the road? To cockadoodle dooo something."

What did the baby chicken say when he saw his mother sitting on an orange?

"Dad, look what marma-laid!"

If you didn't at least chuckle at that, you may want to give it another go. It could be good for you. After all, breakfast humor is the most important joke of the day.

The record for most egg yolks in one egg is 9 yolks.

I don't even have a joke for this one. I just think that's incredible. Imagine cracking open an egg and finding not one, not two, but nine yolks inside? I'd love to know what that chicken was eating when it produced that mutant egg because wow.

Did you hear about the chicken who could only lay eggs in the winter?

She was no spring chicken.

Let's take a brief pause and appreciate this chicken while she appreciates herself in the mirror. Beauty recognizes beauty, and in the words of Shakespeare, "if you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else? Can I get an amen?" What a poet.

Americans consume 8 billion chickens per year which is more chicken than beef.

I personally felt like this little American-related chicken fact was perfectly fitting to go above this picture of a chicken proudly sporting a red, white, and blue tutu. If you say you've seen a more patriotic bird before you're lying. I don't recall ever seeing a bald eagle sport an American flag-inspired tutu before.

What do you get when you cross a chicken and a four-leaf clover?

The Cluck o’the Irish!

Fun fact: in Ireland, 94% of the population consumes chicken at least once a week, and the average household actually consumes it three times a week. Who knew the Irish were so crazy for poultry?

When chickens feel stressed, they start to lose their feathers

But judging from the impressive amount of feathers this particular tutu-wearing chicken has, I'd say she's feeling pretty-stress free right about now. Not surprising, considering she's spending her afternoon modeling a tutu while lounging in a miniature carriage. There are worst ways to spend a Wednesday, I'm sure.

Why do chickens not trust people?

Because they've been known to beat eggs.

Let's all appreciate this elegant bird and her magnificent tutu that compliments her brown feathers perfectly. Truly a fashion icon. And that side-eye? Flawless.

Mother hens talk to their chicks while they’re still in the eggs, and the chicks can chirp back while in the shell.

Of course I had to leave the cutest fact to go along with the cutest picture of two more hens sporting cupcake-liner tutus.

If there's anything that this collection of chicken pictures has taught me, it's that chickens look better in tutus than I ever will and I am more than okay with that.
