Forgive the exploitative (and awesome) headline, but it's Friday and I feel like we all might need a good scientific tidbit to carry with us to our various dinner parties, hot dates, family meals or Xbox Live gaming sessions. Live your life how you see fit, people, just make sure you talk about gender-bending chickens.
As covered by NPR (and published in Nature), Michael Clinton of the University of Edinburgh studies these amazing chickens, which are known in sciencey circles as "gynandromorphs." I kid you not: they're split right down the middle. One side looks like a rooster; the other side like a hen. Seriously, look at the photo.
