- Q: This question arose between friends and has always been a topic of controversy for those that are not farmers....who came first the chicken or the egg??
- A: Fertilization is internal in all amniotes (reptiles, birds and mammals), and occurs within the hen's oviduct, after copulation. Once the embryo starts to form, it develops the amniotic membranes as it travels through the oviduct, and the external shell is also added. By the time the egg is laid, there's already a tiny embryo in there, developing close to the egg yolk from which it feeds.Of course, edible eggs are usually non-fertilized ova... but early embryos occur sometimes.

- A: The penis of a roosters is internal. As is with most bird species. The vent of a chicken is divided by a thin membrane, the upper side of the vent is rectal opening and the lower opening leads to the reproductive organs. When a rooster mates with a hen (also known as topping her) he curls his tail over hers and places his vent over hers. The vibrating of the hip bones at the base of the tail is what causes him to ejaculate. He deposits his sperm on the rim of the hens vent. The hen then draws the sperm inside using the muscular action of her cloaca. She then stores the sperm till she is ready to deposit some into an egg to fertilize it. Though I will point out in rare cases Parthenogenesis occurs where a hen fertilizes her own egg with her own d.n.a. and didn't need a rooster to create a fertile egg.
