Mother hens are known to fiercely guard their chicks and the evidence of that statement was on full display during a rainstorm in Visakhapatnam, India.
On August 25, Anil Kuma Pentakota captured video of a mother hen spreading its wings and getting soaked as she protected four or five chicks.
“This video was taken at a local fish market when there was heavy rain, we can see mother’s love in the natures way,” told ViralHog. “A hen protecting its chicks in heavy rain.”
Wrote one commenter on YouTube, “Some animals are better parents than humans.”
A mother hen will care for her chicks until they are several weeks old.
