Development of techniques for sexing birds


Development of techniques for sexing birds



Chinese Journal of Zoology 38(5): 106-108



There are two traditional methods of sexing birds: surgical and cytological. The former examines the gonads directly and with the risk of causing sterility. On the other hand, the latter examines the chromosomes in the cell nucleus assigning sex based on the size difference between W and Z chromosomes but is prone to subjective error.
