A Curious Family. [Newspaper Article] — Singleton Argus — 22 December 1880

A Curious Family. Northern Paper. AT Gympie, the other week, was wit-<*> nessed the queer spectacle of a hen sit-<*> ting on a litter of pups about five weeks old. At the time the pups wore born, tho old hen commenced clucking to the pups, and when they would not respond to her call she flew into a terrible rage, and attacked their mother so fiercely as to cause her to slink away. She then colleotod her pups under her wings, and after they had grown disgusted with prospeoting 'unsuccessfully nmong tho feathers in search of milk, she got up and began scratching up choice morsels of food from the ground, nnd endea voured to instruot them to partake of the delicacies. The puiis, not compre hending this peculiar method of feeding, refused the worms. This so enraged the hen that she again, flew at tho mother, and caused her to whine most piteously. Tho next day the ;sanio strange behaviour was indulged in, and wns continued until the parent actu ally compromis...
