Mother Hen Turns Into ‘Umbrella’ To Protect Her Babies From Heavy Rain (Video)

A mother hen, like a human mother, will do everything she can to protect her young.

A mother hen, an iconic emblem of maternal love, will look after her baby chicks, worrying over their nutrition and keeping one beady eye out for outsiders.

A video from India has gone viral, demonstrating the depths of a mother hen’s commitment and her willingness to put her kids’ needs ahead of her own.

A brood of small chicks can be seen snuggled around their mother hen in the video. During a severe downpour, the feathery mommy spreads her wings over them, functioning as a living umbrella for her children.

She, like many parents, is unconcerned about her feathers being drenched by rainfall; all she worries about is keeping her children warm, dry, and comfortable.

According to the individual who captured the heartfelt footage:

“This video was taken at a local fish market when there was heavy rain, we can see mother’s love in the nature [sic] way. A hen protecting its chicks in heavy rain.”
