    Hi! I'm looking for an app to help organise/manage my animals - does anyone use anything like that? At the moment, I use a Word file on my computer, along with the calendar and notifications on my phone and my actual mental memory... but it doesn't work as well as I would like. I forget stuff, I fall behind... It would be so handy to have an app where you can fill in which animals you have, their ages, feed, laying habits, health, due dates etc etc!! and it would give you notifications, calculations and stuff like that!

    I wonder if anyone knows an app like that? When I do a Play store search all I get is pet breeding games...
    I'm hoping for something that tracks different kinds of farm animals, but only a poultry managing system would work well, too.

    Thanks and regards,
    IRis.

    Those could work! Thank you, @Ardj !
    These seem mostly intended for dairy farmers, though... I was hoping for something more specifically for backyard flocks/herds. But it is definitely better than anything I could find!

    You're welcome. I think you can add there other group of animals. You can look in that direction.
    If you type "backyard chickens" in the google store it will give you some apps for chickens.
