Tell me more about why CP doesn't want purebreds in the country and about the ohknas controlling the egg market. :popcorn:

I'm interested in this as well, and wondering if one would expect to meet with similar resistance in the beef industry. i have some plans to begin a few AI halfbreed calves around a year from now... and it would be quite frustrating if (brace yourselves) my sperm gets confiscated at the post office.

because purebreds can be bred at home- you don't need to keep buying the F1's.
cp controls pig genetics too.

feed milling, moving into 7/11 style retail.

not into beef.

you need cold chain delivery for the frozen semen OD. post office won't work.

Glenn from Walkabout could maybe give you some advice- he has a beef operation with genetics from Oz not far from where you live.

Make sure to wash the hatching eggs for about 10 minutes in hydrochloric acid (25 % solution). Why ?: When a bird lays an egg then the egg is covered with a lubricant coming from the birds fallopian tube. This lubricant quickly dries off and clogs the eggs pores and therefore the chicken often die off due to a lack of oxygen. Normally the mother bird solves this problem while sitting. The feathers of the bird rub gently against the eggs with every breath the bird takes, gradually removing the dried lubricant (that’s the reason why these eggs become shiny).

Because you can’t copy the mother bird you have to use chemicals that remove the lubricant and opens the pores of the eggs. Leave the eggs about 10 minutes in hydrochloric acid and then clean them under fresh water with a toothbrush. That should do the job.
If you do not believe this just put your hand into hydrochloric acid and see how effectively it removes your skin.
I drink it daily and wash my nutsack in it weekly.
Und der Haifisch der hat Tränen
Und die laufen vom Gesicht
Doch der Haifisch lebt im Wasser
So die Tränen sieht man nicht

In der Tiefe ist es einsam
Und so manche Träne fliesst
Und so kommt es dass das Wasser
In den Meeren salzig ist

interesting about the hydrochloric.
I own one of the Vn incubators and I can assure you it is a very high quality and sophisticated commercial piece of equipment.

So if we put fresh duck eggs in the incubator, how long would it take for them to be saleable as Bong Tia Gon?
