But that's not all she has - a few hours after giving birth, she came across these newly hatched ducklings.

Her mother instinct kicked in, and she brought them along and started to nurture them.

It's amazing to see ducklings draw milk from her, and one can only guess that this is an instinct from the ducks too, as they have come across an unusual source for nutrition and just learned from the kittens.

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.
