Since it was developed in the early 90's, DNA Gender determination has become a valuable service to the Avian Community. For most species of birds it is impossible to determine the gender visually or behaviorally and before DNA Sexing, surgery was the only accurate option.
Like humans, birds have two different sex chromosomes but they are opposite. Female birds have a pair of chromosomes called ZW and the male pair is ZZ. In humans, females have XX and males have XY. During procreation, the male and female each contribute one chromosome to the offspring. Consequently, in humans the male determines the gender of the offspring but in birds it is the female that determines the gender of the chick.
