Chicken: Male or Female… How Can You Tell?


A rooster looking straight in the eyeI love that line from the old 1980s movie, “9 to 5″, when Dolly Parton says to her boss: “If you ever say another word about me or make another indecent proposal, I’m gonna get that gun of mine, and I’m gonna change you from a rooster to a hen with one shot!”

Anyway, back to the point here:

A friend of mine who lives in a crowded suburb and who recently got chickens said he and his wife were one morning awoken around 4:50 a.m. to screeching of a rooster. “WTF?,” he jumped out of bed saying.

The truth is, hens get all of the love. To the best of my knowledge, no one tries to have “hen fights,” just rooster fights. And because of that morning thing, places that allow backyard chicken raising often outlaw the keeping of roosters… and really for a good reason.

So how do you know whether you’ve got a rooster or a hen? Great question, and this blog post here gets into answering it. Check it out here!
