How Does a Chicken Egg Become Fertilized?

Answer

males, called roosters, have reproductive organs known as testes, which produce sperm, which are transferred to the sperm sacs. It takes only thirty seconds for the roosters to deposit sperm in the reproductive tract of the hens. The sperm that leave the body of the rooster through an opening called cloaca, enters the oviduct of the female and travel through the various parts of the reproductive organs to reach the infundibulum, a fennel-shaped organ. In this journey, which takes almost one week to reach the destination, these sperm pass through the shell gland of the hen, then isthmus and magnum, finally to reach infundibulum.
