Hi Netters,

             On the ABC News Radio last night at 10:30pm this conversation took place between an interviewer and a professor from a USA University. To assist in the correction of abnormalities of babies in the womb like cleft-palate etc, the following experiment was carried out.

              Parts of a quail and duck egg were removed and placed in the opposite egg. Each hole was then sealed and allowed to incubate. Before hatching the eggs were x-rayed and revealed in the quail egg, the complete body of a quail with the head and flat bill of a duck. The other egg had a complete body of a duck with the head and sharp bill of a quail.

               Asked if the eggs were allowed to hatch, the professor replied that it was illegal to allow that to happen. Each egg was terminated before hatching.


All the Best
