Is there a test that can tell the age of my bird?

No, there is no such test. You will have to rely on the breeder or pet store on how old your bird is.

What if I have a lot of birds I want tested, but do not have the money to test each individually right now?

If you want to test all of your birds but want to save cost, we can pool the samples for you. If the result turns out to be positive, we will have then have to test each sample individually in order to find out which bird is infected. We will not do the individual testing …

How long does it take to receive results?

- For infectious diseases, it takes 2 business days.
- For profiles, it takes 3 business days.
