Do chicken breasts in stores come from hens or roosters?
From both actually. When raising meat birds they grow so fast they do not distinguish genders. The birds are ready for market long before the become sexually active and the meat is the same anyway.

Both. Meat birds are mixed gender. Birds used for commercial market are processed at a certain weight not gender or age. BBQ chickens are usually between 2.5 and 4 Lbs dependi…ng on the requirements of the end user (restaurant or supermarket).
The tail feathers of a rooster tend to be longer and brighter than those of a hen. Along with the plume, these feathers tend to be the most outstanding feature on a rooster.
Roosters are able to breed at about 6 months old.
Yes they can. They can breed. However very few of the eggs will hatch, and the offspring will be sterile hybrids. They do make some interesting looking poultry though! See …Related Links
They are both! Most of the chickens in the super markets are raised especially for meat use and grow so fast (heavy) that they are useless for breeding or pets. They are gener…ally crosses between cornish and rock breeds. The roosters may reach market weight a few weeks sooner then the hens but they will soon follow.
Neither. A rooster is a chicken and a hen is a chicken. Rooster and hen are just the words to distinguish the gender of the chicken from male and female respectively.
you can tell because the rooster have like a small crow when they get older
a hen has a minge and a rooster has a willy hope this will help you
Yes, but a rooster is a male chicken and a hen is a female chicken.
Contrary to popular belief, chickens actually CAN fly, although not very well. It depends on the breed, and the size of the chicken. Bantam breeds can sometimes fly quite far,… due to their small size. They aren't capable of sustaining flight though.
the rooster will have a much bigger comb than a hen and longer legs and shiny feathers and has a much bigger tail...
Pullets (female chicks) and Cockerels (male chicks) are called "Hens" and "Cocks"/"Roosters" when they turn one year old.
Chickens = The species name for said egg-laying livestock. Roosters (known as cocks in other countries) = Male chickens. Larger than hens, with big combs and fancier tai…lfeathers. Hens (known as pullets when less than a year old) = Female chickens. They lay eggs, while roosters don't. Therefore roosters and hens are both chickens, but they are opposite genders. The physical difference between them is mainly for reproduction: roosters seem larger and more visually appealing to try to attract the females attention, then the females would decide which male to mate with.
