    This thread follows the same line of thought as Bow Lake Rising did, although this time I've put it in the correct section. The old Stewardship thread got cluttered with off-topic material (that offended some people). It sunk back into oblivion and is almost entirely forgotten, so I thouhgt I'd start a fresh, new one. If you aren't familiar with this subject, Stewardship is a step beyond mere breeding. Stewardship is breeding and managing your birds in such a way that they greatly improve in hardiness, vitality, fecundity, broodiness, temperament, (in some cases, production) and intellegence. Breeding is simply picking what you want and breeding more of it.

    Anyone have any thoughts?
