More Bird Biology

A quick update on the avian reproduction topic cannot be resisted. One of last night's readers found this blog by searching on the term "how chickens mate" (!) and by backtracking to the search engine from whence the reader came (you knew I was crazy already), I discovered a most remarkable article about the reproductive practices of domestic fowl.
While perhaps it will only be of special interest to members of my immediate family (we used to have chickens), I suggest that anyone who wants to know weird things about the sexual lives of these birds, and see highly unexpected photos, should immediately take a look at "Laying Odds on Hens, Roosters Gamble Their Genes."
