After getting several responses positive about a way to keep track of peafowl and peafowl lines I then submitted questions to a software company with specific peafowl questions in regards to pen groups and breeding.The response was very,very favourable and I'm certain this will simplify recordkeeping at least on my behalf. With a traceable way to verify and show parentage of peafowl I see this as a great way to enhance their selling values.If we have eggs to sell,or young peachicks to sell,we could then direct possible buyers to this database where they could see information about the parents and breeding group, the chicks or eggs they are wanting can all be seen. I keep enough records each year to fill a small notebook with information on every page.Every night during breeding season I record the number of eggs gathered from each pen,record the date on the egg it was laid,and then record how many and the date they was put into the incubator.Many nights I fnd myself adding information that I think s relevant or will be needed later.This template can be uploaded to any server.A blog can be added for personal notes. I keep a spreadsheet on my computer as well as the notebook,It is double the paperwork and sometimes if I get a day behind it takes me over an hour each night to upload and write down information. This would not be open to the public per say,,there would be a username and password needed to access the information or to do updates and upload data.You will be able to add a picture for every bird you have in the database.Hatched chicks can be traced back to their parents for as many generations that you have information uploaded on. I had 8 seperate breeding pens this past year and in 2013 this will increase by at least 2 more.This database has no limit on the number of birds that can be added.I'm thinking if this pedigree database can be linked with a photo database for identification,as well as the blog for notes this would be a huge step forward for some of us that like knowing where we stand on many aspects of breeding.Anyone else see the value in doing such a thing?
