Adding and Editing Data
To add a new animal breeding to the list, click on "+ Add New", to edit click on "Edit".
The entry screen will display.
The actual breeding should be recorded on the day it occurs. After the animal gives birth or the eggs hatch the number of births should be recorded. For small nesting animals the count can be estimated until an actual count takes place. The survivors can be updated as necessary. If there are no births the "No Birth Failed Breeding" box should have a check mark placed in it to keep this animal from showing past due in the reports.
When working with animal breeding in this system the female will be chosen to mate with the male. To do this, the female's name will be selected then the male name can be added to the breeding list. The males breeding records can be found by going to the "Main Animal" screen and clicking on the animal's name to get a detailed report about the animal including all breeding activity.
