We looked inside some of the posts by catsbeaversandducks and here's what we found interesting.
Meet Della. She lives in a farm in Ireland, and she has kittens.
That’s not all she has, though: a few hours within giving birth, she came across these newly hatched ducklings. Her mother instinct kicked in, and she brought them along and started to nurture them.
If she had come across them a few hours before or after giving birth, her hormone level might not be the same and she would have eaten them.
It’s amazing to see them draw milk from her, and one can only guess that this is an instinct from the ducks, as they have come across an unusual source for nutrition and just learned from the kittens.
As the ducks grow older, they start to behave more like ducks and less like kittens. This includes constantly walking away from the box and mother has a lot of work keeping them in place.
They have no problem keeping in line though, and even though they grow a lot faster than their “siblings” they loyally follow their mom around the farm, as ducks do.
