Surely all of you would agree that mothers are awesome, right? They’re caring, loving and can do everything for their little ones. Mothers in all forms are awesome.
In the animal kingdom, you wouldn’t even think of hens being the most amazing mothers. But just because we don’t see it doesn’t mean that it’s not true.
If you didn’t know, hens are known to adopt other chicks and care for them as if they were their own. This is quite normal as there are foster mothers for abandoned kittens or puppies, even ducklings and chicks as well.
Although hens are naturally very nurturing and accept all chicks that come their way as their own, they are also quick to adopt other animals as well, it is hilarious to see how and what they claim to be their own.
Here are some of the amazing mother hens and their ‘tiny babies’.
