Pure white peachicks hatch out pure yellow, and are much more difficult to sex. You'll either need to wait until they're about one year old, or use a bird DNA testing site.
For our snow peas, we use IQ Genetics at www.iqbirdtesting.com. There will be a fee per sample sent in for testing, but the fee is reasonable and it's fun waiting for the results to come back.

The Science Behind DNA Gender Deterimination in Birds

Birds have different sex chromosomes than mammals.

Male birds have two Z chromosomes, while female birds have one Z chromosome and one W chromosome.

The Z and W chromosomes are different sizes, which allows scientists to use DNA analysis to determine the sex of a bird. Male birds have a single band on their DNA analysis, while female birds have two bands.

Our vast DNA database allows us to compare each result with birds of the same species and known gender.

Species That We Test


IQ Bird Testing tests more bird species than any other testing company that we know of.  If you can't find your species on this list, let us know, and we will try and add it to the list.
