Hi Mitch. Just a comment of concern.
Clearly, I understand the need to know a bird’s sex but I’m also very concerned about this kit that anybody can buy, including many of the idiots out there that own birds.
Editors note: not my words
Do you really want to encourage all owners to pluck their birds feathers and cut their nails too short in order to get blood for testing?
There are experienced owners out there that could do it but there are probably many more out there who could cause an emergency and pain.
I have lived with 17 budgies but I would would still go to a vet for something like that.
I wish you would write a follow up to that article to inspire caution. The article makes me very nervous frankly.
If you are considering making your own birdcage perches from trees in the backyard or local forest preserve, it’s important to know which wood species are safe and which ones are not. Please use the list below as a reference.
If you do introduce outside wood into your bird’s cage you should disinfect the branches with a good quality disinfectant like Mango Pet Focus – and allow them to dry completely before putting them in your bird’s cage.

Anatomy and function
The upper respiratory system (URS) consists of the external nares, operculum, nasal concha, infraorbital sinus, and choanal slit.
The nares are paired symmetrical openings with an operculum within each. The nares each communicate with the nasal cavity containing the concha.
The left and right nasal cavities are separated by a septum. The nasal cavity communicates with the left and right infraorbital sinus.
I am truly enjoying your email newsletters. Very informative.
Need some of your advice, I have a Timneh African Gray named “Saber”, now I think about 30 years old. I ended up buying him when he was about 3-4 years old. For several months I would visit the pet shop and always stopped by Sabers cage to play and talk with him.
I have a 5 yr old Catalina Macaw that I have had since he was 6-1/2 weeks old. At 6 months old, he broke the bars of his first cage, then we got him a big “Kings Corner” Cage, and it didn’t take him long to learn how to open the latch on the door, so we have been duct-taping that for quite some time now.
