    I put together an Excell spreadsheet today to automatically keep track of my animal breeding details. By plugging in the date incubation starts, this program will let you know the hatch date, when to stop turning, when to put eggs in a pipping chamber, ect... It keeps track of culled eggs, and brooder losses to give you a ratio of sucessfull hatches and egg to brooder ratios. It can chart who your most productive birds and rabbits are. As dates approach, color coded flags let you know to put in nest boxes, ect... It tracks which rabbits produce how many kits and the survival ratio thru weaning. It has a separate page for chickens, Mallard derivatives, Muscovies and rabbits. With a few changes it is easily adaptable for any animal breeding program. I wrote it in the Office 2000 version. I think that it should work on any reasonably modern version of Excell. It isn't working with Works, but I think that I can fix that. If anyone would like a copy, let me know and I'll E-mail it to you.

    I would love a copy!! I bought an expensive chinchilla breeding software and have been trying to adapt it to work with my rabbits as well but it just isn't working. My email address is chinclub@lowcountry.com.

    Thanks for sending it to me! It is really neat. I'm only able to use the rabbit section right now and I can tell you it will come in very handy. Just yesterday I miscalculated the kindle date and placed a nesting box in with mom only to find babies in it 4 hours later. I bet that pour mom was crossing her legs hoping I would get it there in time. :no: I'm thankful that the timing worked out but so angry at myself for what could have happened. :bash:

    Now this will never happen again!!

    Yes, me too, please. The commercial software is SO expensive and many are not readily adaptible to anything other that what they were written for.

    Please send it to easyday@rushingtrail.com.

    Thanks for being so generous!

    Wow. Your interest in my spreadsheet has been incredible. As of this morning, I've sent out 29 copies. I figured that maybe a few people would like to try it, I never imagined so many would want it. If I knew it would be so popular, I'd have passed the hat. LOL. Anyway, If anyone asked for it and hasn't received it yet, please let me know and I'll get it out to you. FYI, I'm working on adding pigs, sheep and goats to it, and then will work on other larger animals, cows, ect... This may take a bit of time as I know nothing about the breeding cycle of these animals. I hope to have the next version out in a week or two.
