Determining the sex of many birds can be very difficult and in some cases, impossible, if relying solely on physical appearance. Laparoscopy is a reliable technique whereby your bird’s internal sex organs are inspected. During the procedure, the bird is anesthetized and a small incision is made in the skin to allow a small camera to visualize the bird’s internal sex organs. Other methods of sexing are also available but are somewhat less reliable. Please feel free to consult with us about these procedures.
