Re: Sex-changing Chickens QUESTIONS and :)

I see what you are getting at, stupid of me not to think of that. A devious rooster, of course!.

The chicken is around two or three years old. I am not sure whether it has laid or is laying eggs, I will find out.

A trip from Australia to Denmark seems improbable given the chickens lack of a valid passport and current incarceration. But keep in mind this may be a very devious chicken.

First, what age was the chicken when it seemed to have 'changed sex'?

    Second, has the 'hen' ever laid eggs.  Is it currently laying eggs?

    Does this chicken mount the 'certified' hens?

Third, by what method (if not by egg laying) were the three chickens'
sexes 'determined', earlier?

Fourth, did that chicken recently return from a vacation in Denmark?*
