hy !

you can just centrifuge your bird blood, recover 10 µl of sera and put it in
0,5 ml tube.
put 1 or 2 drop of mineral oil under the sera and put the tube 5 minutes in
microwave at maximum range !!!
then  perform any PCR

I test this tip during several years and it looks good for human blood and
1 - 2 kb DNA amplification

good luck
