AVIAN DNA SEXING
Sexing any bird is as simple as pulling out 2 feathers!
1. Prepare sample bags
Label an envelope or zip-lock plastic bag for each of the birds that are to be sexed. The label should show some form of identification e.g. Ring Number L31, Sammy, etc.
3. Pull Feathers
2 wing or tail feathers should be pulled from each bird. If you must submit body feathers, please submit at least 5; we prefer to have tail or wing feathers.
Pull firmly and quickly and place the feathers into the envelope or bag. Please ensure feathers are pulled from the bird and not picked up from the ground.
4. Mail Feathers
Post the bags/envelopes to us with the completed printed Form .
Feathers, Sample Form and payment should all be posted to us
A DNA sexing card will be issued for each of the birds
