That's interesting! Is it this Patent? Krautwald was researching sexing techniques on a hormonal base inwhen I discussed in my blog down now the possibility of the prior incubation sexing via biophotonic method.
I suggested also to Dr. But there was no deep interest. My idea and goal is to develop a device for commercial use - but also for home use for poultry and bird fanciers like chicken, pigeon, parrots, parakeets, budgerigars, falcons breeder etc. Especially the home use device could be a huge market!
It is not my patented biophotonic method, but my more recentbut different methodology patent application. Hi, that will be interesting. What stage of commercializing the product? Useful in layer studies. How about its applicability in dual purpose and broiler varieties? Does it refer to eliminating female chicks and produce only male chicks for profitable commercial enterprise?
Financial implication is to be furnished. Congratulations on the attempt.
