Blind chickens produce more Amounts of eggs
The Canadian study was conducted on birds, the blind chicken produces greater amount of eggs Compared with their peers from the chicken, which has a good sense of sight.
Professor Greggoi Bidikarats animal science specialist at the University of Joilv Canada: The members of a strain of chickens, a "Smoky Jose", suffering from hereditary blindness, and so they start producing eggs in the early stages, as they are producing in larger quantities compared with other birds, chickens.
Dr. "Bidikarats" explained, chicken that generally begin to reproduce after it is increasing in the length of the period of the day on where they are absorbing greater amounts of light by the region located in the brain known as the "Hypothalamus" and that produces hormones and the nervous control of the part responsible for the organization and functions of the body, such as automatic regulation of temperature, hunger and the sleep and wake up.
Dr. "Bidikarats" might be begun to conduct studies on the breeding patterns of birds since 2004, with a view to assessing the impact of light on the ability of birds to produce eggs (Multiplications).
According to preliminary results published by the Jerusalem Press Agency, despite the fact that light stimulates the "hypothalamus" in the brain directly, so the bird become capable of reproduction, however, what inhibits this ability is the process of capturing light rays by the retina. It was commenting on these results.
Dr. "Bidikarats" said that, when the network does not show the blind chickens in response to light rays, which inhibits the ability to reproduce, therefore, works only on the light to stimulate the "hypothalamus", which pays for the start of production of chicken eggs in the early stages, and this leads Male birds to reach the stage of the capacity to mating sooner.
The researcher hopes that these studies will contribute to increasing the productivity of chickens from eggs, through the creation of optical techniques to improve the egg production at these organisms, the results may also help to develop methods to regulate the reproductive behavior of the other varieties of birds.
