    Howdy!

    I've been surfing the 'net to find examples of pigeon pedigrees, and thought I'd pick y'all's brains as well. I've been pedigreeing rabbits for several years now, so I probably know enough about pedigreeing pigeons to be DANGEROUS! LOL [​IMG]

    I figured the National Pigeon Association would sell blank pedigrees, but no dice.

    So - what system do you use to keep track of your pigeon breeding activities?

    Thanks a lot!!! [​IMG]

    I made my own [​IMG] So I make copies and write in the info myself. I don't keep pedigrees on all of my birds. Just the breeders and the birds I sell/give away. Everything else is kept up through my breeding records (band number, when they hatched, when they were weaned, who the parents were, what color, and gender).

    Understand that the validity of pedigrees depends upon the breeding system. In open loft breeding a high percentage of the squabs are sired by someone other than their purported daddy. For the most part, I don't trust pedigrees unless the birds have been penned seperately.
