Ducklings are being raised by a chicken after a series of mix-ups that resulted in a mother duck sitting on a nest of chicken eggs while the hen hatched the duck's eggs.

In a case of "mistake-hen" identity, the hen and mother duck laid their eggs in neighboring nests. Each gave birth to a clutch of eggs. The next day, the hen mistook the ducks' nest for her own and chased the duck away. The poor mommy duck hatched the chicken eggs but was terrified when a bunch of sharp-beaked chicks emerged.
Meanwhile, the ducklings were imprinted onto the hen, and the happy hen and her proud rooster partner take the ducklings everywhere they go.
