I have chose to start a weekly collection called Wisdom top top Wednesdays where i hope to share with you part random trivia that I’ve learned during the week. It may not have anything to execute with pregnancy, childbirth or newborns, yet it will be interesting…

Let’s begin off v something everyone has actually wondered about at some allude in their lives.

You are watching: Do chickens lay eggs out of their anus

Do chicken lay eggs out their anus, their vagina, or is that some one-of-a-kind egg hole?

Stephanie from Mama and Baby Love discussed this through me last week. The conversation started when I stated that we’d gotten a chicken that Gabriel had named Bobby. Other than being relatively confident that it requirements food and also water, i know virtually nothing about chickens.

We talked around chicken foods, watering systems, eggs, and yep, (maybe since we both are birth junkies?) what type of hole does the egg come out of.

I mean… is the the chicken’s butt? If so, that is a serious bad style because chicken poop smells favor rotten cigarette butts. I determined that that couldn’t be the butt, because I understand that chicken eggs are sterile when laid. We decided to consult Google ~ above the matter. Oh yes, we discovered answers, but I felt that this time ignorance might really have actually been bliss.

Chickens do lay eggs out of your anus! But, it’s not as bad as you think.


The egg, poop and also urine (which for a chicken isn’t a liquid) exits out of the very same hole (aka, the vent, as you have the right to see above).

BUT, as soon as an egg comes out, the chicken’s Cloaca is turned inside the end so that the egg can not come in call with the intestines (fecal matter nastiness).

Here’s a link for the whole story.


I’m happy come report the egg laying is not a negative design.

Chicken poop does no come in contact with eggs, unless a chicken decides to walk in it and then placed her talons (that makes me think of Napoleon Dynamite) on she eggs.

If god knew what he to be doing, that would’ve offered the chicken a separate channel for the egg instead of sharing a vent with the feces
