Mother hen adopts helpless kittens and keeps them warm in sweet footage
They might be odd, but the animal world also provides some of the most precious interaction you’ve ever seen, and this one is no different. A chicken taking care of three tiny kittens may sound like something out of a fairy tale, but it actually happened in this farmer’s barn. The man even caught the adorable scene on video and it went viral online!
As usually happens, at Goran A. Surchi’s farm there are a lot of animals that live together in harmony; from dogs to cats, goats and sheep, and even birds. Nonetheless, the Kurdish farmer never taught his animals will ever bond in sweetest way. But when three orphaned kittens needed help, they found it where no one would expected. A mother hen stepped up to provide them shelter and comfort.
One day, Goran heard the kittens crying and he went to investigate, but when he realized the meows are coming from the chicken coop, he initially thought the hen and her baby chickens might be in danger. But it wasn’t anything like that! Surprisingly, the mother hen decided to take the helpless kittens under her wings and keep them warm.
“For some time now, I was hearing meows coming from our chicken coop and I was curious to know what was going on, as our chickens could be in danger,” the farmer explained. “When I realized that the meows were coming from under the chicken, I decided to record it so as not to miss this unique moment and to my surprise, there were three beautiful kittens.”
As it turns out, the three kittens were orphaned, after their mother sadly passed away, so they needed the love and comfort that only a mother can provide. But since all the mothers are protective and caring, the hen named Lee was right there for them!
Goran shared the heartwarming footage on TikTok, and everyone fell in love with the way this mother hen provides shelter for the hopeless kittens. You can watch the beautiful moment here:
