keeping track of different breeds or family of birds
« on: January 11, 2018, 01:08:28 »
I'm wondering if it is possible to separate one breed of pigeon from another breed. I noticed when entering young birds that i've raised from 3 different family's of a breed, that they ALL are listed by year, band number, and family, that's fine. But having 3 different BREEDS of pigeons, is there a easy way to keep them separated from one another?
Thanks Ed

I think i figured out how to identify my different breeds. I added the column NAME to the data fields. I use that to enter what Breed i'm entering data into. Maybe that's how your suppose to do it. Hope this helps anyone else that has diff. breeds.

It is "strain" in the bird data.

Is "breed" a better English term than "strain" or does it even depend on region? (British, American, Australian, ...)

Strain is the usual English term. Occasionally "family" or "breed", but it is usually "strain".
