I think ducks would need a different design - their bodies are much longer than a chicken's.
Oh, I see. That makes much more sense.

First, those are adorable.

Secondly, I really wonder about the folks who think it's ok to bring fowl inside their homes. Seems risky to me.

They carry salmonella, but their internal body temp keeps it at bay in them for the most part. But if it gets on/in us, our lower temp allows it to run rampant. And then, no droopy diaper in the world can hold that result.

I've heard that they have really weird sex organs, too. (Not that there's anything wrong with that)

Most roosters have internal glands. The mount the female and do a vent smear. Interestingly, the sperm can be stored for up to 2 - 4 weeks inside the female, fertilizing eggs for that long.

It's a great survival technique and is one of the reasons birds have been on this earth for 300,000,000 years.


Ducks and geese have an organ that recoils when not in use.

Man, sent Dot the neatest Chicken Motherhood pic on FB, don't think she's seen it. NEVER got the hang of posting photos here or would. HUGE mama hen with her arms around LARGE chicks while they stood in the rain. Title is "This is what MOTHERHOOD is all about," or something close to that.

Hoped she may be "nesting" in OLS around now, and could ask. Anyway, plan to try calling sometime to day Dear. Thought you might appreciate a warning, lol!!! Hugs.

Joy comes with morning -- Only the sunrise --
Never smiles sadly -- Into the past.
