Imagine going out to take care of your chickens and hearing not clucking, but… meowing?
That’s exactly what happened to Kurdish famer Goran A. Surchi in Iraq when he went to check on his chickens. To his surprise, he heard a soft mewing, and when he realized it was coming from one of his chickens, he pulled out his phone to record what happened next.
We won’t spoil the surprise — take a look for yourself!
Tragically, these three cute kittens were orphaned, and Goran told Bored Panda that the mother’s body was found nearby after apparently drowning in a lake. Thankfully, thanks to this sweet chicken’s motherly instincts, these kittens were kept warm and given a second chance!
