Chickens are generally considered to be fairly cold animals. Sure, they’re fluffy and feathery and very social with each other, but they can be territorial and skittish, too. It also doesn’t help that wild animals like hawks and foxes find them tasty. So it’s no surprise that they keep to themselves and avoid interacting with other creatures.
This hen, however, is quite a bit different. She’s protectively sitting on what one would assume to be an egg… but the reality is enough to make any animal lover squeal!
It’s incredible that a chicken would show so much empathy for another type of animal—let alone one that would naturally be considered a mortal enemy. What a strange and wonderful relationship!
