When Cheese Flies…

September 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

Aside from being the future of communication, it now appears that pigeons can produce “milk.” I’m a little creeped out that every instance of the word “milk” is cradled in suspicious quotes… nevertheless, it appears that our little winged survival kits have evolved to provide sustenance during the impending apocalypse.

The researchers found that those pigeons which lactate to feed their young tend to have genes which encourage the production of antioxidants and immune proteins.

There you go. Pigeon “milk” will probably make you invincible. Stock up on your flock. Start making pigeon cheese and maybe even create your own avian ice cream (human milk ice cream didn’t make it).
