    You know I think of weird stuff all the time, but this one just gets to me.
    One of our members on the WI cheese heads thread, mentioned that his neighbor does AI on some of his birds..

    So it got me wondering, if they collect like the do bulls and stallions.
    IE ... like this

    So I think the phantom hen they use must look like this

    Nope. I AI chickens for school. While I won't go into details, I will state I made an 'A' in this class.

    All of your Butterball turkeys are the result of AI.

    [​IMG] There was programme on it on TV once. I can't remember how they did it, but I remember thinking it was just weird. Nothing wrong with the natural way of doing things.
