Chickens are generally considered to be fairly distant animals. Sure, they’re fluffy and feathery and very social with each other, but they can be territorial and skittish, too—especially around humans.
It also doesn’t help that wild animals like hawks and foxes find them tasty. So it’s no surprise that they tend to be on edge most of the time. This hen, however, was quite a bit different!
She was protectively sitting on what one would assume to be an egg… but the reality was enough to make any animal lover squeal in delight!
