AVIAN DNA SEXING SERVICES

DNA sexing can be performed with blood, feather or eggshell samples. Animal Genetics has the world's largest database of avian DNA samples with over 2000 different species of birds from around the world (Sexing Species List).

Genetic Testing

Blood, feather or eggshell samples are all equally reliable for testing. Animal Genetics offers these different sample collection methods to give its customers several alternatives from which to choose. As with any genetic test, the quality of the sample submitted for testing is critical, and can affect the final result. To prevent any problems please follow all instructions carefully, and contact Animal Genetics if you require assistance.
