    In regards to roosters laying eggs I have one that has laid eggs on a continuous basis. Not every day but it does lay I've isolated it so I know it's laying I have him her and I had a hand and that's all I have. The eggs vary in sizes. They contain no yolk so far. But they are fertile. So to those non-believers that a rooster can lay or can't lay. You are wrong. To those who have these rare rare rare chickens they're worth a lot of money.

    Lol. Roosters don't lay. Scientific fact. Same way a man can't become pregnant. However, hens with hormone imbalances, often caused by damage, cancer, or infection of the ovary, (the same issues which can easily cause eggs of unnatural sizes, shapes, or consistencies - e.g. lacking a yolk) may crow, develop male feathers, a masculine comb and wattle, and even mount other hens. They are not roosters - they are hens. They simply appear to be roosters. Acting or appearing to be a rooster is not the same thing as being a rooster.
