Owl Mistakes Duck Egg for Its Own and Ends up Raising It Anyway

Share on Facebook

An owl has mistaken a duck egg for its own and has raised the duckling as her own… and it is the cutest thing!

And the recent discovery of an owl raising a duck as her own has captured hearts all around the world. But firstly, let’s take a look at some of the cutest little friendships…

The pair met in a Norwegian forest.

While on a walk, Tinni and his owner, Torgeir Berge, were on a walk together in the forest when they met a wild fox.

And now every time they visit the forest, the pair meet up to play around with each other despite all their differences.

The experience has changed Berge’s mind about Norway’s fox-fur trade. He now wants to help work to ban the hunting of foxes. We love it!

According to their owner, this pair has been best friends for the past 6 years.

That rainbow really pulls everything together.

But in the meantime, he has Morris to keep him company.

This photograph was titled: “You look this way and I’ll look the other.” They always have a watchful eye over the farm.

Keeping with the subject of horses, now we have a budding friendship between a horse and a dog. And as you can see, they’re really fond of each other.

This combination provides a healthy dose of cuteness.

Imagine capturing such a beautiful moment? Wow.

Now, these old age frenemies have decided to call it quits and become besties instead. Cute or cute?

This unlikely combination found a love for each other while they were at Duluth Animal Hospital.

“She was an experimental chicken in the program and she had run the course of the experiment, so that was it for her,” Williams told the Gwinnett Daily Post. “I asked if I could have her instead of them doing anything with her. I brought her home.”

Did you ever think you’d see a two-legged dog and an overly fluffy chicken taking a walk in the snow? I’s life’s most simplest pleasures.

This Staffordshire Bull Terrier and her pet chicken have been friends for a while now and they’ve managed to steal our hearts.

I know this isn’t your typical friendship, but that’s exactly what makes it more adorable! No? It’s the rat, isn’t it?

It doesn’t matter what species you are, friendships can develop everywhere.

The owl who took on a baby duck.

And he wasn’t alone.

Laurie had witnessed the duck’s family over the last few days. “The baby duck was in the hole by itself, calling for the parents. We believe they heard each other because it suddenly left the box and made a beeline for the back fence and our neighbor’s pond where the woodies have been hanging out… also, we had seen a female Wood Duck – about 3 or 4 weeks ago, remove a duck egg from a box that had been raided by something, and fly off toward this box with it.”

“We lost it in the trees and didn’t want to disturb it. But we believe she put it in this box and the owl hatched it.”

We don’t know what is! For more adorable animal content, keep scrolling to read about the gorgeous rainbow bird…
