Just to note: another strategy that has been employed for this problem is to pool genomic DNA from multiple individuals, digest with a restriction enzyme, size select and make libraries from that defined fraction. I believe the recent chicken paper in Nature did this and definitely it has been published for other species (cows & pigs?).

By performing the restriction digestion & size selection you essentially create a smaller genome, which can then be sequenced exhaustively.
