Chickens have safe sex too!

SydVicious SydVicious
I was reading Mental Floss magazine and they are doing an article on chickens. So here is a fun fact for you, in honor of Easter.

Roosters can mount a hen too roughly, leaving bald spots and scratches on her back. The other hens' will then peck at the raw skin and they usually won't stop until the hen is dead. So..farmers strap tiny aprons, called "hen saddles" on the hens' back. The rooster can then climb on the hens' back without injuring her, allowing the chickens to have safe sex.

Holy crapoli! I feel bad now that I know the poor little hens have to go through all that just to make me breakfast.

It's the natural spurs the roosters have on their...heels I guess you could say. A wounded chicken can infect a whole flock so the other hens will attack the wounded one, nature at it's best. Could you imagine if human females were that way, it would add a whole new element to S&M!

Actually that isn't for breakfast, that's just if they want chicks. The vast majority of the eggs we eat for breakfast are not fertilized and don't require a rooster at all.

This sounds to me like these chickens are just looking for any excuse to kill. Chickens are known for their blood-thirst and savagery!

Nature is definitely cold-hearted. Poor hens! Now that I know this about the aprons, whenever I drive by a farm (I live in a very rural area), I'm going to start looking for aproned chickens, lol.

Can you imagine being the farmer putting on the apron? I would feel like a chicken pimp...
