I'd also very much agree that it's very unusual to get a wrong DNA from a specialist avain vet ;-)

I get quite a few DNA tests each year and I still have 100% correct results.

I'd honestly say that with the advanced technology over the last few years the sexing of monomorphic birds via DNA samples is now definitely the way forward, it's now made a massive impact of bird breeding as a whole because it dosen't have to be loads of birds being wrongly paired up and time waisted throughout a whole breeding season,

I've personally not actually had to use DNA sexing yet but will now definitely consider using DNA with some of the very difficult to sex small softbills :thumbup:

Be lucky
