DNA Sexing

Cost: $45.00 per bird

No Appointment Needed.

Hours available- 1:00pm-3:30 pm Tuesday Through Saturday

 

Most birds are not sexualy dimorphic, meaning you can not tell by looking if they are male or female. At Parrots N Stuff we offer DNA Feather Sexing. It is far quicker, and safer than surgical sexing, or a blood card. Feather sexing is very similiar to a groom, we will wrap them up in a towel just as we do during a groom, and quickly remove several feathers. The feathers are typically taken close to the top of their legs/under the wings. This guarantees they are feathers that will contain the DNA needed, but not be large flight feathers.

 

Once we pull the feathers we will send them off to the lab we use, and typcially we have results back within 1-2 weeks. Within a month a certificate will be mailed to us, and ready for you to pick up next time you are in the store.

 

If you have questions on DNA sexing please reach out, and we will be happy to help.
