What Are DNA Females?

Silkies are near impossible to sex.

Amber Waves is one of the very few if not the only breeder that sexes groups of silkie chicks by their DNA.

How do you sex chicks with DNA?

When chicks are old enough to wing band, we take a drop of blood place it on a card and send it to a lab in Florida. In about a week we receive the results as to which chicks are males and which chicks are females. Each chick’s results come with a DNA certificate stating whether it is male or female with its wing band ID.

How do you price the females?

The females are priced as follows…

Total Cost of Chicks
Total Cost of DNA

Then we take the number of females and divide the total cost, and that is the cost of each female.

Historical prices of females have ranged from $50-$275 again depending on the number of females vs. females.

What about the males?

The males have no value as most people want females. We give the boys away to good homes. They are free you can take one or all. We can ship them for the cost of the shipping see below when we have them.

Shipping female chicks - depends on their age we only ship over a month of age and closer to two months is better. We do charge $10 per chick per month or part of a month to hold them till old enough to ship.

We have very limited space to keep chicks.

DNA'd Females Sell out very fast.
