    A poultry website explained that this sort of sex change in chickens was a one-in-10,000 rarity. It happens when a damaged ovary causes the hen's testosterone levels to soar and therefore the bird's appearance and behaviour change from female to male.
    Orginally called Honor- after Honor Blackman- owner Gill has renamed the bird 'Your Honor', to acknowledge the chicken's new more masculine status.
    Gill said: 'Your Honour obviously doesn't lay eggs anymore but I couldn't stand to eat her so she gets to stay with the other chickens.'*
