Forced bird's parthenogenesis

Postby enarees » Sun Dec 01, 2013 2:28 pm

If we remove(or neutralize) the ovary of the female, it will become a fertile male.
If we kept the eggs from the same female, we can get only offspring of its genome.

Thus, by heterogamiy, known in botany, we can mutate birds.

Where did you get it will become fertile male? Do you have any publications in support?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

...When the dormant, right-side gonad is switched on, it develops into a male sex organ called an ovotestis. Scientists have found that an ovotestis will produce sperm and this sexually reversed hen will try to mate with other hens in the flock. It is however, unknown whether a hen that has undergone a spontaneous sex reversal and developed an ovotestis can sire offspring...

I personally saw hen laying eggs, which then began to copulate with other hens.

But what has any of this to do with parthenogenesis?
