NEW FOR 2023!

We are very pleased to now be able to offer DNA testing to determine the parentage of racing or homing pigeons.

A pigeon DNA test to determine parentage is a powerful tool for breeders and owners, allowing the determination of clear genetic links between a chick and its parents.

Racing pigeons can be extremely valuable, requiring a need for an accurate means of determining genetic lineage or identification. For example:

  • Identification for the sale of valuable birds
  • Confirmation of young parentage
  • Genetic lineage may be important for some pigeon races
  • Identification in case of theft
For further information please see our Pigeon Parentage service page and sample submission information.
