I don't know much about hens other than the fact that they are birds and they lay eggs. My dad has three hens and a rooster named Clint Black and the Dixie Chics. They are the only interaction I have ever had with chickens, so it's safe to say my expertise is very limited on them. When you typically think of a hen, you don't necessarily think of something nurturing or loving, right? Well, a farmer got the shock of his life when he thought his hen was laying on an egg. But when he lifted the hen up he found something remarkable.
Under the hen was a teeny tiny baby kitten. It had been abandoned and was all alone. How this hen found the kitten is unknown, but what is known is that this hen saw a helpless baby in need and her mother nature kicked in. In the video you see her being protective of her adopted baby and doesn't want to see her go.
This hens mother instinct kicked in and she probably saved the life of the baby kitten. It proves loves sees no barriers or restrictions, love is love and it can conquer all things. If you need love, go give love and you'll see how what you give out to the world comes back to you. Take a lesson from this hen and her baby kitten. Watch the video below and see it for yourself:
