So basically the bottom line is you are an unethical person. There's no
doubt breeders do this. I do know what you are talking about and you
can find article after article to back you up. Its a process that
breeders use mostly to make money. Its all about money. Yes, I'm sure
there are those rare cases where the breed may be on the verge of
extinction. You can go back and forth all you want. I'm convinced you
are of scientific mind without ethics and would do anything for the
mighty dollar. You can say you were just giving a "technical" answer to
a simple question, but you seem a little defensive about the issue.
Looks like I'm not the only one who thinks little of people who do this
procedure with birds (or any animal for that matter).
