DNA Sexing
  What is it? Avian DNA sexing is a blood test to determine whether a bird is male (boy) or female (girl). The lab who does this test for us has accuracy better than 99.9%. It usually takes less than a week to get the results. The cost is $20.

Can't you tell without a blood test? Sometimes yes. It depends on the species, colour mutation, age of bird, time of year, and social group. We will offer a best guess, if we have one. Our accuracy is pretty good, but not 99.9%.

I want to be sure that bird is a hen before I commit to buying her! If you wish, you may pay for DNA-sexing on a particular bird, and decide whether to purchase based on the result. We will hold the bird you are considering until the results arrive.
