Ummmmm. Go Japan.

Sexing chickens - say again? - still a Japanese fraternity
By Mario Osava

RIO DE JANEIRO - Nearly all of the 90-odd people in Brazil who provide their vital services to chicken farmers, identifying the sex of day-old chicks, are of Japanese descent.

In fact, a full 90 percent of Brazil's chicken sexers are of Japanese origin, said the president of the national association of chicken sexers, Tacaaqui Mifune. People of Japanese descent account for 0.8 percent of Brazil's population of 168 million.

The technique was introduced in this South American country around 75 years ago by Japanese immigrants who only passed the skill on to their children and grandchildren, thus maintaining an exclusive fraternity, said Edilberto de Freitas, production supervisor at the Pena Branca poultry company in the state of Sao Paulo.

"One of the world's most specialized careers would have to be chicken sexing," writes Bob Martin, an Australian who has spent 60 years studying and practicing the occupation. In his book "The Specialist Chicken Sexer", Martin explains that three Japanese scientists developed the technique for determining the sex of hatchlings by examining the chick's vent (rear end) back in 1924.

Martin says the technique involves close examination of the chicken's cloaca, a common external opening for the digestive, urinary and reproductive tract. The sexer looks for a degenerate penis presented by all males, as well as 15 percent of females. The skill lies in determining the sex of that 15 percent.

Sexing chicks as early as possible is crucial to maintaining the productivity levels demanded by today's market, because the sex of a chick determines its fate, and the kind of rations and other care it receives. Chicken raising farms, for example, must send only pullets (female chicks) to commercial egg producers, whose costs would rise if they fed cockerels (males) unnecessarily.

Vent sexing

Vent sexing involves literally squeezing the feces out of the chick, which opens up the rectum (more properly, the cloaca) slightly, allowing the chicken sexer to see if the chick has a small "bump", which would indicate that the chick is a male. Some females have very small bumps, but rarely do they have the large bumps male chicks possess.

Reminds me of that song by Fergie of Black-eyed Peas fame.

What you gon' do with all that junk?
All that junk inside your trunk?
I'ma get, get, get, get, you drunk,
Get you love drunk off my hump.
My hump, my hump, my hump, my hump, my hump,
My hump, my hump, my hump, my lovely little lumps (Check it out)

What the fuck is she talking about?

Phasianidae. Had to look that up.

Pheasants; quails; partridges.

Can't you just call a spade a spade mate?

That successful American show wasn't called 'The Phasianidae Family' was it?

And the whole thing about chicken sexing is that it ensures that half the chicks, the male ones that is, don't become "large".

If its hump, its hump, its hump, its lovely little lump identifies it as male, the chicken sexer promptly places it into a container of water till it drowns, it drowns, it drowns ....

A spade is after all a digging implement -

I am taking lessons from Riccardo "brain as big as a planet" thus posting tosh most of the time .

I actually pictured a turkey .

Any reason you chose to introduce yourself in the chicken sexing thread? You Japanese?
