Hi folks. It has been a while since I posted.

I have had heart surgery and been occupied with my budgies.
I particularly like breeding and giving tame pet birds to young people and Retirees.

Yesterday I bought some tiels from Gumtree. Long story which I won't go into but have been neglected/abandoned.

They have been wormed now and are getting fresh veggies.

There is one mature hen. She keeps laying. From what I can ascertain No mature cock.

Some juveniles. They are visibly smaller But I don't know their history, sex or age.
I am guessing they are all hens but that could be wrong. All whiteface.
In any case I don't particularly desire having siblings mating.

I have searched DNA testing and found lots of links to testing kits. But not what to do with them.

Any help would be appreciated. Can my local vet DNA test them?

Cheers.

Don't know about any vet, but an avian vet can certainly do a DNA test.

Thanks for the reply.

I am seeing a breeder about a mature cock.

Perhaps he will be able to tell me.
