    Whoa! That means if my pet bird ever got spayed, she'd be pretty-ish too?! LOLOLOL!

    But I love the little eggs she leaves me <3 If she had reproductive issues maybe [​IMG]

    Maybe it's just me but I don't get how taking away the female hormones gives them male characteristics? X minus X doesn't equal Y. Are they injecting male hormones to make them rooster-ish? Sorry, but they just look like plain old roosters to me. [​IMG]

    Quote:Firsly the arrangement of sex chromosomes are different In birds XX= male XY=female. Secondly, The removal of the sex organs does not change the chromosomes. Thirdly, ovarian, rather than testicular, hormones are responsible for sexual dimorphism.

    I hate to tell you, but hens do not have male saddle and hackle feathers.. you might be able to pass off the larger comb and wattles, but not the 2ndary sex charactoristics of a male chicken..

    read my post, on your other post...
