A 13 Year Old Girl Found This Egg. What Hatched Right In Her Hand Was Surprising!

HideeDeekee from Reddit went through her old cell phone and found a series of really special photos from when she was 13 years old. Back then she found an abandoned dove egg and decided to raise the bird all by herself. This photo journal says it all.

 She named the little dove “Deekee” and said:

The wild one was allowed to come and go as she pleased, like a house cat. One day, she didn’t come back. Either her lack of fear due to us raising her got her captured by a person thinking she’d be a good pet, or eaten by a predator… however, I have hopes that she simply found a mate and reverted to her wild instincts. Allowing her to roam as she wanted for at least a year allowed her to regain her natural fears and behaviors back.

Let us hope that “Deekee” had a good and happy dove life without too much trouble. He was certainly lucky to be found by such a nice girl because otherwise he wouldn’t have had a chance out there.
