Avian DNA based sexing

Good news! Nethanel Trading is the exclusive partner with Amazon Forest, Taiwan to provide affordable DNA sexing for avian species in Singapore. Read on to find out the merits of DNA sexing.

Most bird species are monomorphic i.e. Sex can’t be determined by visual means. Unlike mammals, bird species have a chromosomal designation known as ZW chromosomes. Females carry the ZW chromosome pairs whilst males have the ZZ chromosome pairs. Hence, it is the female which determines the gender. Through a non-invasive test, DNA sexing can help bird owners establish the gender of the birds with high accuracy.
