Do chickens really have vaginas?
Dr. Harmless answers the tough questions...
After the release of Episode 1 of BrainGravy, the biggest controversy appears to center around whether chickens actually do have vaginas, or, conversely, the fact that many people don't know whether chickens have vaginas. Well, I am here to answer that question once and for all!
The simple answer is: Yes! Chickens do, in fact, have vaginas! The complicated answer is that, although chickens have vaginas, they are not exactly like human vaginas. In fact, if one were to try to find the equivalent in the human female, it would be more like a cloaca, which is a common cavity into which the intestinal, genital, and urinary tracts open in vertebrates such as fish, reptiles, birds, and some primitive mammals. In other words, its like an all-in-one common, primarily exit, vent for the hen. The vagina in the chicken acts as the passage from the uterus to the cloaca. Chicken vaginas also have reservoirs for storing sperm. So while in the real world, in the hen, sperm from roosters are used for reproduction, and, it should be noted that hens do not need roosters to produce eggs; hence, the unfertilized eggs are the ones for human consumption.
Every once in a while, you find the occasional mutant male of the human species that finds the desire to engage in a sexual experience with a chicken . And for those who do engage in such an action, yes, chickens do have a vagina! For those who need further clarification, click on the link, or email me care of this blog!
Look for other answers to the tough questions in the future!
