Hens are usually not among the top 10 animals loved the most by humans. Usually it’s the cats. Or dogs. In fact, we hardly think of hens as pets. Perhaps, some of us may love chickens as pets, but, such instances are rare. However, it turns out that hens are incredible softies. They actually are the best moms in the world; they take care of not only their own babies but also of other babies.
We have compiled a collection of pictures that will make you realize that hens are the very best at parenting. Their maternal instincts are such that they shower their babies with love and compassion. These hen mommies do not think twice before taking the babies into their warmth. And the best thing is that they do not care whose babies they are taking care of! For them, it does not matter whether they are her own babies or the neighboring cat’s babies! The very fact that they do not care for the species when it comes to babies and parenting proves that they are the best moms in all of the animal kingdom!
