This website is to keep lovebird breeders all over the world informed of the progress of the Agapornis genome study.

The study is part of a PhD degree that looks at the genetic make-up of lovebirds and to develop genetic screening tests for all lovebird species.

Currently, we are busy developing the parentage verification test for lovebirds. This will allow breeders and buyers to verify the parents of a bird before it is sold.

We also hope to develop a test to determine if a young is a split for a specific color mutation, even before it is sold. This will, however, be in a later stage of the study.
