Mothers are one part of the parenting units, but they are indeed great. It is just impossible not to admire them. And it’s not only humans, but mothers in the animal kingdom, too. Have you ever seen a Panda or a Polar bear mom? They risk their lives to get food for their little ones, and also teach them all about life from their very first day. It’s simply amazing! But I doubt anyone has ever thought about how hens are dedicated mothers, too. Have you seen how a hen takes care of her chicks? Hens are known to adopt other chicks and care for them as if they were their own.
Farmers have their hens adopt little chicks all the time. But it’s not only chicks that they adopt. Hens sometimes adopt other animals as well. And as a surprise, we have one rooster who is an awesome adoptive parent, too!
Take a look at these amazing mother hens and their tiny “babies”. Aren’t they the cutest things alive? And the most caring ones, too.
