I don't get why Joey and Chandler call their pet 'she'? Is there any chance that a rooster is female? Or... It's just a joke regarding a woman as a chick? I thought it would be a misogynistic joke but I doubt it, because it is a TV Show. So I couldn't figure it out myself, that's why I'm posting this post.Joey: It’s the chick! She’s…going through some changes.
Monica: What kind of changes?
Chandler: Well the vet seems to think that’s she’s becoming a rooster. (The rooster crows.) We’re getting a second opinion.

Hi, Juhasz.Do you know how to determine the sex of a juvenile chicken? I don't. Neither do Chandler and Joey. When they got the chick, they assumed for whatever reason that it was female. As it matured, it became apparent that it was not female, but male.
It's not really possible for a female chick to become a male rooster (and there are no female roosters). If the characters had wanted to explain the circumstances in a non-funny way, they would have said, "It turns out we were wrong; the chick is actually male." Instead, they made it a joke by suggesting that a female chick was becoming a male rooster.
