test kits you recommend?

so i'm most likely going to use a test kit to gender test my boi, and was wondering if there were any ones you guys recommend?

feather plucking would be the preferred method :\
we had to dip nanners foot in iodine once and omg that was so crazy i can't imagine him sitting still long enough to let me quick him slighly much less apply powder! so feathers is probably best.

Re: test kits you recommend?

I actually find the powder does more harm than good because they pick at it.

I like Avian Biotech ($19.50) and my friend uses IQ ($11.99). Avian Biotech gets it done a little faster but I might be switching. I know Avian Biotech does feathers, I assume IQ does as well.

Re: test kits you recommend?

I have used Avian Biotech myself several times, as has my mother, and we have also used them at the Rescue I work at many, many times (they give a great multi-test discount package, as well as a discount for non-profits)...Never had any issues with them, they are quick and I'm not aware of any inaccurate test results or contaminated tests, etc. from them.
