    What is it you want the software to do? Accounting, tracking offspring/genetics?

    Is there an easy program to track genetics and offspring? I'd be interested in something like that for our small flock needs. [​IMG]

    I just started using The Chick Chart which is a program developed by BYC member whiteconfections.

    I like it. Its simple enough for me to use and allows me to track egg production, expenses, keep records of all my fowl and has a section for incubation and brooding (I haven't used yet, since I don't have an incubator, yet).

    You should be able to do a forum search for 'the chick chart' and you'll find a post he had asking for beta testers.

    I did a search for that user name and found his webpage. The Chick Chart is available to purchase for only $8.00... I already put in my order.

    Thanks for letting me know about it! [​IMG]

    Huh, I got the chick chart too but mine does not work. It errors every time I try to put something in [​IMG] , we haven't figured out why yet. I downloaded a free trial of the Chicken Trackin software and it works great and I like it.

    It is on sale to BYC members, check out the post in https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=272876,
    I
    ordered it the other day, I got an email back saying that there was a small problem, but it was fixed, and to expect my copy next week.
    $5.00 + $0.85 shipping, is pretty cheap for what it appears to be able to do. IMHO

    Wow! I thought the $8.00 price was an incredible deal... but he's selling it for even less?!

    Thanks for the link! [​IMG]
