    Hi I was wondering how common it is for chicken and other poultry breeders to get their birds DNA sexed? I operate the Avian DNA division at Viaguard Accu-metrics and we work with a large number of breeders but we have always assumed it would be more popular due to the larger number of poultry birds vs pet birds (i.e. parrots etc.).

    Also I would like to really put together a instructional video that shows that DNA sexing is performed on chickens. I will provide an incentive for any takers (please contact me at [email protected]).
