Avian DNA Testing

Avian DNA-based testing has become the choice of professional aviculturalists and avian veterinary specialists for sexing and diagnosis of various infectious diseases. HealthGene is the leading DNA laboratory with an extensive experience in avian diagnostics. We invite you to explore this website and learn more about DNA testing and health-related issues.


DNA based bird sexing has quickly risen to become the method of choice for determining the sex of avian monomorphic species. With accuracy rates greater than 99.9%, it is no surprise that this method of sexing has become number one with bird owners and breeders worldwide.

HealthGene offers:

  • FREE sample collection kits.
  • FAST results: 95% of results reported in 2-3 business days after receiving samples.
  • LOW price: only $19.00 for any sample such as blood samples, eggshells or feather samples (plus taxes for Canadian clients only).
  • Certificate for each DNA sexing test result.
  • Please note! We recommend submitting blood samples as feathers and eggshells do not guarantee a result! If your feathers or eggshell samples are not viable, you will be asked to resubmit using blood samples.
