    I've been a little confused by that. I don't know the standard vocabulary for chickens, but in college people doing gender studies always insisted that sex was the biological distinction between male and female and gender was social. So I was always corrected in the opposite distinction. *shrugs* ha. I'm getting off-topic.

    This is what I was taught as well.
