    Well, we've had folks say the seller "looked under the tail" to determine gender [​IMG]

    We've also had someone take a bird to a vet to be caponized and the bird came home with incisions in his groin and the owner was told the testicles hadn't descended yet [​IMG]If you're not up on bird anatomy, chicken's testicles are under the ribs, not in the groin, and they don't "descend" anywhere, they're right there all along. And that was a vet!

    Yikes! Poor bird I know specialist vent sex by looking under tail as babies but the whole incision thing is nuts....no pun intended. Some one needs to let them know chickens do have nuggets.
