Gynandromorph Chicken - Page 12

This tread is great and very interesting... its always enjoyable to learn something new about nature... and just when I think I know most things about my chickens something new pops up!

 

Apparently this thing happens in many animals.  Here are a few photos that may be on interest.

Only noticeable in ones that are sexually dimorphic.. like butterflies and birds.

 

I remember seeing a Vet TV programme where they had a dog.. a Jack Russell that turned out to be male and female... it was in to get neutered when they found out.

I'm so sorry that I'm bumping this thread; but what is the difference netween a hermaphrodite and a gynandromorph?

Basically the same thing, but hermaphrodite is referring to humans, gynandromorph is primarily used when discussing/describing animals. Chickens that are gynandromorphs are typically split into a 'male' side and a 'female' side. It' quite interesting, but incredibly rare.
