    I don't know how to express my feelings ,the first time i see the spayed hens. shocked! surprised! unbelieveble! ,all they are !
    A spayed hen is really different from a common hen,it looks more like a rooster than a hen , it has big ,red crest; long tail,and its feathers are very beautiful.
    I want to send a picture to this post,but i don't know how to make it .[​IMG]

    You have to have 10 posts I believe. And, what's the point of spaying a hen?

    Also a spayed hen will not 'waste' energy making eggs.

    How exactly do you spay a hen? My vet said that they will not survive a hysterectomy.
