Man Finds His Chicken Looking After Three Orphaned Kittens And Captures It On Video

Farmer and soldier Goran A Surchi that lives in Kurdistan, Iraq, located a somewhat unlikely scene in his hen cage and decided to tape everything on video.

Have a look at the adorable video

To his surprise, Goran located his chicken looking after 3 orphaned kittens in their nest, and the cats looked quite relieved and comfortable under the noble bird’s wings.

Unfortunately, the mother of the 3 kitties had lately passed away, leaving the cats orphaned and looking for shelter and care. Luckily, this kind chicken chose to look after them and covered them under her wings as if they were her very own little ones.


Obviously that day Goran listened to some meows originating from the chicken coop and went there believing that his hens and chickens may be at risk. To the farmer’s shock, the meows came remarkably from under the chicken, which appeared to hatch the kittens.

Goran told Bored Panda:

” For some time now, I have listened to meows coming from our hen coop and I wondered to recognize what was going on, as our chickens could be at risk. When I recognized that the meows were originating from under the hen, I chose to record it so as not to miss this special moment and to my surprise, there were three gorgeous kitties there “.

Apparently, the hen named Lee decided to take care of the little orphaned kitties and offered them some heat to comfort them after their loss.

Goran says:

” Later on we came to search for the kitties’ lifeless mother. Unfortunately, she drowned in a lake near the ranch. Amazing how our hen seemed to recognize the story, thus solving to take care of the kittens.

Of course, Goran decided to share the lovable video that rapidly went viral on TikTok, getting to just over 17,000 likes. To his surprise, the reaction of his hen with the 3 kittens touched the hearts of many Internet users.

This story is a sample regarding just how nature never ceases to amaze us in the best possible way and the proof that empathy between species exists, and this has actually recently been proven at Goran’s farm.
