Experience from use of endoscopy for sexing of birds

Experience from use of endoscopy for sexing of birds

Monatshefte fuer Veterinaermedizin 41(3): 91-95

An account is given of the literature availabile on sex differentiation of unimorphic bird species, followed by reference to experience obtained from endoscopic sexing of Ciconiiformes, Falconiformes, Strigformes, psittacines, Coraciiformes, and Passeriformes. Neuroleptanalgesia based on combinations of ketamine with diazepam was successfully applied to 111 individuals of 40 species and subspecies. Nor was any problem faced in the context of surgical procedures. Infantile gonads and adipose conditions in the abdominal cavity proved to be factors for limiting impact upon information. Against the background of present knowledge, surgical sexing is considered to be the safest and most time-saving method which also is independent of the given phase of reproduction.
