    I like to see pictures and read stories of animals taking care of a different type of animal than themselves. I've seen videos of hens watching over kittens, dogs being protective over chicks, and ducks feeding fish. I know people on here have broody hens hatch out duck other other poultry eggs. I'd like to see some pictures of different types of mothers caring for their adopted babies.

    My husband found this picture... I don't know where it came from or whose hen this is.

    AAAAAAWWWW!!!! That's sooo cute! I have one hen who still likes to be brooded. She tries to brood under a bantam OE hen... doesn't really work. [​IMG]

    OMG, that is so cute! It's funny that the puppy is up under the hen but the hens chick is stuck off to the side with no room.

    This is what my dogs do in their spare time.... The 2 grump look after the orphans when they're very young/ tiny.... as soon as they start to move around to investigate their surrounding, the boy took over.
