      If we remove(or neutralize) the ovary of the female, it will become a fertile male.

Scientists have found that an ovotestis will produce sperm and this sexually reversed hen will try to mate with other hens in the flock.

      I personally saw hen laying eggs, which then began to copulate with other hens.

      But what has any of this to do with parthenogenesis?
