Thats disturbing - turkeys so big they can't reproduce !

It is around thanksgiving time in the US of A. Here is a very interesting article about how food has changed due to modern genetic changes. It turns out that turkeys are now over double the size there where when the pilgrims ate them.

The key issue - artificial insemination. When turkeys get to big they can't mate as there bodies are to big to do the act! OMG! But with artificial insemination you can breed really big birds as they don't need to mate.

Isn't modern breading wonderful.
