Hi Mystik

It really depends as to where you are located. Can I judge by your login name that you are from New Zealand?

Curtin University in Australia offers a DNA sexing service. They advertise in the Australian Parrot Society's magazine and they claim greater than 99% accuracy. Contact details are as follows: Dr David Groth (m) 0417 915837 (w) 08 92667475 or 08 92667374

I've never used them though because my 2 birds were DNA sexed when I got them.

I have been using DNA Services out of Arizona and really like them. They do eggshell, feather or blood for $20.00 for the first ten and then go lower. They are really quick.
