    As far as I know a Rooster doesn't have the "thingie" equipment, the "goodies" are deposited on the chickens vent - and from there find their own way home.

    wow. er, I think so...judging from the pleasure sounds our roos make...and, of course, that's how they fertilize the egg. Don't know how much pleasure the hen gets, though....[​IMG]
