Surogate “Mother” Hen 3

Had a Banty chicken that has been brooding for 4 weeks, bought 8 random chicks and put “Drusilla” with them. Instant bonding…within 30 minutes all were all under her wings. We could not believe that she could fit all 8 of them. Now she has her brood and is happy.

Mother and offspring

It is a common matter in village area particularly in Bangladesh that duck eggs are incubated by hens and after completion of incubation the offspring accept the hens as their mother. In this video you can see two sets of such mother and offspring from Rangpur, Bangladesh. www.drmujib.tk/
