    I read about this somewhere (here I think) about how a hen can reject the sperm of an undesirable roosters attempt, and I witnessed it first hand tonight! Puck mounted his sister, zirzi and when he was done, she pooped it back out. Guess even chickens know its wrong to in breed.

    That is as hysterical as it is gross! (And I read a similar study somewhere, but have not seen it in practice).
