A couple days ago we saw a cat similarly confused…
I just hope the kittens don’t try to nurse.
I can relate to this hen! Being a mom for 14 years and a nanny for 10, it’s hard to turn it off!
once a mama ALWAYS a mama!
Vey cute. The kitten looks like it’s saying “What’s with this hen? Why’s she sitting on me? Do I look like an egg?”
I rehabilitated a horribly abused rooster who had a wonderful nurturing instinct. He mother henned all our kitten fosters. clucking over them, grooming them and doing whatever he could to corral them and sit on them, or at least hold them under his wings. Roosters and turkey toms have a reputation for being anything but parental towards their young, but we had a pair of pet turkeys when I was a child, and the tom was the same way, after the hen died and left turklets to be cared for.
I had two husbands that were turkeys….LOL.
When a hen gets broody she will find something brood even if it’s kitties.
This would go well with the cat sitting on the eggs picture from a few days ago. lol
I thought the exact same thing!!!
ya think there was some sort of mix up at the hospital…?
lol that’s funny, but cute.
