A DNA test is the simplest way to know with certainty the sex of a bird. Our sexing test will tell you if your bird is male or female with a 99,9% accuracy.
This test normally needs of a few feathers or a small blood sample of the bird, although it can also be carried out with eggshells and even other tissues.
Each result is sent with a certificate-card that includes the details of the specimen tested.
Each sample must be sent separately in a clean paper envelope. Prepare one paper envelope for each bird you are going to test. Each envelope must be labeled with the same identification for the bird you have stated on the form.
Follow the instructions provided on the paperwork to collect the samples. It is very important that you follow those instructions step by step and that you send the samples according to our instructions.
Post the samples to us with the completed printed form to:
Calle de José Ortega y Gasset,
22-24, 5th Floor,
Once the result is ready, we will contact you by email. A DNA sexing card will be issued for each bird tested and sent by post or email at your option.
