Hi Netters,

              Tuned into ABC News Radio on Friday night at 10:30pm and this interview had started.  A person asked a USA professor about her experiments to help fix baby deformities in the womb, cleft pallet etc. The professor took out part of a duck and quail egg and placed it into the opposite egg. The holes were sealed and the eggs allowed to incubate. When near to hatching the eggs were x-rayed and the following seen. The duck egg had a complete body of a duck with a head and sharp bill of the quail. The quail egg had a complete body of a quail with the head and flat bill of a duck.

              Asked if the eggs were allowed to hatch, the professor said it was illegal and the eggs were terminated. No mention of how this assisted her baby research. End of interview.


All the Best
