Mothers are awesome. They're caring, loving and can do everything for the little ones. And I'm not only talking about amazing women, but also about all the mothers of the animal kingdom. Hens included.

Hens are known to adopt other chicks and care for them as if they were their own. Farmers have their hens adopt little chicks all the time. But sometimes hens are quick to adopt other animals as well.

Take a look at 10+ amazing mother hens and their tiny "babies". Which one of them surprised you the most?

    What if they just like to sit on other animals? Like "Yass, I leave the smell of my butt all over them" XD
