Blood samples are commonly obtained by clipping the toenail too short. Once you see the blood you can spot it onto the orderform or blot it with a Q-tip. Let it dry completely and cover with tape to prevent cross contamination and send it along with the orderform.
Let the shell dry completely, seal each shell in a separate container or bag (paper works best) and send it along with an order form.
Feathers submitted for gender testing must be freshly plucked. (Molted feathers or ones that fell out on their own do not contain sufficient DNA for testing.) Seal them in an envelope along with an order form and send them by regular mail.
Once we receive your materials, results are usually available the next business day. Results will be automatically e-mailed with the certificate attached once the results are ready. We will also mail you a certificate if requested.
Sample submission is as easy as printing an order form from our website, collecting a blood, eggshell or feather sample from your bird and mailing it along with payment to:
In the event that a submitted sample does not contain sufficient DNA for processing Bird Sexing Solutions will test another sample from the same bird at no charge. In no event shall Bird Sexing Solutions be liable for incidental, consequential, special or other damages of any nature even if Bird Sexing Solutions Has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
The regular price for Bird Sexing is $20 per sample. For new clients I offer the first 10 samples for $10 each. The submitter is responsible for Payment and Payment must accompany the sample unless prior arrangements are made. We accept checks, credit cards, money orders and PayPal. If you are a business and would like us to send an invoice just let us know in advance.
We ALWAYS give volume discounts and Special pricing is available in certain situations. Please contact Marcia to discuss your specific needs.
