I used to raise chickens. I know about broody hens. You can put tuck egg under them, and they’ll sit on it until it hatches. They’ll accept strange chicks, even if they’re birds of a different breed. Sometime I’ll write about my experiences with broody hens.
But for now, both chicken and feline lovers will find a smile in this sweet Japanese video. I don’t understand a word of the narration, but the film tells the story. The hen is tolerant of kitten behavior during the day. At night, when the little cat sneaks into her coop and right into her nesting box, she lifts her wing, and the two settle in for a snuggle.
