A beautiful, rust-colored hen who lives in Shoreline has become surrogate mom to seven ducklings.

Jocelyn Curry Asher of Shoreline says because she doesn't have a rooster, and because the hen name Cinnamon urgently wanted to hatch eggs, she placed seven fertile “Khaki Campbell” breed duck eggs under her and 27 days later, all seven eggs hatched.

Check out the happy family in the video below.
