When Your Hen Raises Kittens

Here’s a chicken raising her second generation of… cats! Yes, these three kittens are the offspring of a mother cat who was adopted by this same chicken. The hen’s daughter helps out, but she won’t allow any other chickens into the coop while she’s nestling the kittens.

Domestication does some wonderful things with animals.

  1. My cat is an old boy so no kittens for us, but I raised the chicks with him around and they seem to get along just fine. When I let him go in the yard they tend to chase and peck at his tail, or close enough for plausible deniability. Daring girls, they are.
