Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen was praised by her many fans after nursing a sick baby owl back to health.
The farmer and TV star recently took to Instagram to share a clip of herself helping a little tawny owlet and fans were in awe.
“Owlet,” she captioned the post at the time. “The tawny owlet was dehydrated in our vets’ opinion (he was here anyway blood testing cows).”
She added: “We rehydrated with glucose solution & put back into the barn. A great resource found on the barn owl trust website.”
In the short clip, the mum can be seen holding an owlet wrapped in a small blanket before she handed it over to her daughter to hold while Amanda got the medication.
Amanda then said to her kids: “We have found an owlet… what we are going to do is give it some glucose solution and make sure that it’s okay and rehydrates… this has 3ml in tiny little drops.”
Fans were incredibly impressed with Amanda’s kind-natured spirit and took to the comment section to compliment her.
“I love that your kids are so hands-on,” one user said. “I expect that’s true for most kids that grow up in the country on farms etc but it’s so nice to see real positive things. Well done Owen Family you too Clive.”
Another commented: “Aww that’s amazing, thanks well done,” while many simply wrote: “Well done!”
One praised the efforts she went to and posted: “Wonderful – I adore owls and it is great to see every effort being made to save one little owlet – well done all.”

It comes as Amanda was forced to defend herself after being accused of having children to help her on the farm.
The star, who has nine children but has ruled out having another, explained: “I try not to build comparisons with what everybody else is doing. I’m quite fortunate that I don’t have to do competitive parenting because I’m isolated, so I can do my own thing.
“But being part of a big family, being on the farm and having various tasks and responsibilities, I think those are really good life lessons.”
She continued to The Sun : “To teach them washing and cooking, I don’t mean for one minute my kids are skivvies but I want them to feel like an important part of what we do and that they’re valued.
“I think that responsibility holds the family together, especially with the older ones, it gives them independence.”
