The program allows to file all
the subjects of an ornithological breeding , memorizing number of the band, type,
name, sex, physical and behavioural characteristics, band of its father and its
mother, various notes, cage in which itís kept.
The data are inserted in files
that are shown from time to time in lists, in which you can select the wanted
data, in this way we avoid to write again data already introduced, eliminating
the possibility of errors of digitations.
After having installed the
program one proceeds to the entry of all the Breeders that appear in the bands
of the breeding since a subject cannot be inserted if its breeder. doesnít
exist in the file.
The Types of the bred subjects
must then be entered, inserting the personalized type for the races of birds, simply writing the description of it. To every type a
Technical Card can be assigned, which will contain the descriptions of the
physical characteristics and the Evaluation Cards.
At this point you can insert in
the Individual Register of Data the subjects that have passed through in
breeding including those dead or sold.
Initially the File contains
only a male subject and one female ( ZZ999-1970-0 and ZZ999-1980-0). Which must be
used for inserting the subjects with unknown parents. To insert a subject itís
compulsory to know the number of parentsí band, therefore the insertion of a
breeding has to begin from the oldest subjects continuing towards the new
In any moment itís possible
to modify the data of every subject, but for practicality we advise to insert
all the correct data from the beginning, since the errors of paternity and
maternity migrate on all the descendants.
In this phase with the function
Brooding itís possible to create in file the cages, inserting the male and the
female subjects deciding for every brooding the number of the eggs. In this file
the data of development of newborns will be inserted, from the laying to the
insertion of the band following the development of the newborn one up to the
adult age. The cages and the brooding can also be created automatically
transferring the couplings simulated through the new function Cage.
At this point in the function
Consanguinity a subject can be selected and display all of its ancestors having
a clear idea about the way to characterize the select subject considering the
recurrence in the genealogical tree.
Selected a subject to be
reproduced, "champion" in the following, with the function Couple in
consanguinity itís possible to simulate couplings among the subjects with
higher degree of consanguinity to reproduce to the best the selected champion.
To know if we have in breeding
the relatives of a subject, we use the function Family, in which the wanted
subject is selected in a tree similar to "Management resources" of
Window and itís possible to see all relatives separated by degree, with an
icon beside that points out the presence and the state of the subject in
The complete genealogical tree
is found in Tree, from where, pressing the right key of the mouse, you can
obtain the specific data of every ancestor.
