I have been searching this site about breeding and found a few different types. Who does what? What have you tried that has worked? What did you do that was a disaster?
It depends on the needs of the flock. when breedlng animals, first I talk to the breeder of my birds or ( insert species). I find out which breeding systems he/she used to create the creatures. How closely the birds are related. Is this a closed gene pool, or is there and outcross close up in the pedigree. What influence did any one breeding program have on the gene pools creation and maintenance? What does the breeder feel are both the immediate and long term needs for his/her gene pool? These answers will help you understand which breeding programs are best for your animals. Be they mammals, birds or? Many breeder use a variety of programs depending on the needs of their gene pool. In poultry, any outside blood is best brought in thru the female side. That way if the cross doesn't nick, one hasn't polluted the whole gene pool thru the use of a male.I have been searching this site about breeding and found a few different types. Who does what?
