Artificial Insemination

Cochins International member Ivy Young created this nice video on artificially inseminating chickens. Until you have seen it done it can be intimidating, however Ivy shows how easy it is to perform.

A word of caution – if you are inseminating different varieties or even from different males, use a clean spoon so you know there is no cross contamination. One little drop from the wrong bird can mess up your breeding records!
