I often hear of broody hens mothering the barn litter of kitties

We have had two barn litters but no luck on a broody hen making all that cuteness happen, anyone experience their broody hen mother kittens?

Growing up we’ve always had rescue pit bulls, one guy; Oden use to gather the kittens gently and put them back in their bed when they started wondering. He and who we called Little Kitty were the best of friends. He would panic like “Ahhh, Oh no guys!! The babies are getting away! Save them!!” It was the cutest thing to watch. He would spend hours cleaning them too. I can’t seem to find a picture though

So if you’ve experience this joy, I want to see your pictures!!

Yup we didn’t want Brienna on eggs cause she can be quite aggressive when broody and I try to handle my other hens as much as possible so I don’t want to be attacked

Yes this is like Linda, she gets very protective. This time around tho I noticed some members of our flock not stand for her crap. LoL

We actually moved Linda into our large brooder to hatch because of the attack of Blondy. She seems happy there
