Did you know that hens have high emotional intelligence? They are known to have an amazing sense of empathy, possess rationality, and are self-aware.
Hens communicate with one another as individuals and relate to other animals through simple communication. They are able to sense, like a human mother, others’ needs. Hens have been known to adopt orphaned chicks, fledglings, and even kittens—they literally take them under their wing, and dote on them as if they were their own. Hens are true “mothers” and no one can deny that!
