DNA doesn't lie!

We just got the results of Iggy’s DNA test back from the vet and Iggy is, in fact, a little boy.

why did you test his DNA?

Kinda for grins, and for pronoun use, and also because it can help in a year or two when he matures in knowing how to deal with that- if it is a female you want to discourage nesting and such because eggs can become impacted, and if a male you have to watch that he doesn't pick a mate in the family because they tend to get bitey when that happens.

nothing wrong with having a girl bird or anything- one of the sources for Iggy's name is Ignatz Mouse in the Krazy Kat strip, a strip where Krazy's gender is fairly fluid and ambiguous.
