Go on enarees website (link in his user profile) if you are ready for a good laugh. Then you will know how birds can reproduce parthenogenetically, or more appropriately, how enarees think that it could happen.
Although I suggest that you leave your brain at the door, it might get damaged.

Wasn't there some small feathered, tree-dwelling dinosaur that was discovered in China some time ago?!


I figure that is some solid evidence that they are closely related. Reptiles were different from dinosaurs...Hobble

Didn't some scientist work out a way to breed chickens or turkeys parthenogenetically? I guessed it had something to do with food production but maybe (s)he just did it for the sake of it.

Anyway I'm not advocating the dinosaur reptile idea.

Also I tried to go on enarees website and couldn't find anything about how birds breed parthenogenetically.

Interesting article on male breastfeeding though.

In birds, male generation of parthogenesis obstructs the full extraction of definite genes, but this gives opportunity in parallel a synthesis of new genes of the matings to be created.
In pathenogenetic heiresses parthenogenesis is not such a rare phenomenon.


We have to take into account the intermediate form between birds and reptiles - ...the turtles.
