India develops transgenic chicken !!!!

India has developed a transgenic chicken variety that is fleshier than normal breeds, and can reportedly also be used in the treatment of diseases.

The Truth About Trade reports that scientists said the transgenic chicken marks the first successful genetically modified poultry or livestock in the country. India, which is yet to allow the use of GM seeds in food crops, has been trying to develop transgenic varieties of fish.

The breakthrough research could help boost production in a country where the annual domestic consumption of poultry and poultry products is worth more than 300 bln rupees (US$6.8 bln.)

The tool used to genetically modify the chicken was developed by a team of 3 scientists at the Hyderabad-based Project Directorate on Poultry after 2 years of research using a gene of jellyfish and spermatozoa of a specific variety of chicken from the institute, reports continue.

"It is ready for commercial use," T.K. Bhattacharya, the senior scientist who headed the project, told Dow Jones Newswires, adding that transgenic chickens have already been developed in the US, Canada, the UK and China.

"These chickens can enhance productivity and give a huge quantity of flesh," Bhattacharya said, adding that transgenic birds can produce up to 300 eggs over 72 weeks, which is more than twice the number of eggs produced by normal varieties of chickens.

The institute hatched 263 chicks in its study group, of which 16 were found to be transgenic. The efficiency of the institute's method of producing transgenic varieties is about 6%, a statement said.

Great, I just ate and feel sick to my stomach now! I suppose there will be no labeling of these transgenic chickens either just like GMO.

this is interesting but , all new things get new names , when it poops it looks just like obama [in the sun ] and bidden [in the shade ] , this trans-genetic crap scares the hell out of me , we are going to keep pissing around make some really nasty things in the natural world , already trans-genetic mutations are occurring in weeds next to fields of GMO plants FYI take a 1000 guesses ++++++ where the nasty highly virulent E-Coli probably came from ? it was and still is the most easily messed with organism ; even HGH human growth hormone is made with it . it was used for "I know" for over 30 years for tons of stuff

literally they could destroy these chickens and their poop will carry genetic material , that would probably be put into the environment/ trash/compost pile , more FYI 30% of YOUR poop is the lining of your digestive tract[full of your DNA] , 30 percent is bacteria , the rest is what you could not digest .
