    I Have started to do some test hatches from different breeding pen's of my araucanas, Black x blue, Black x white, etc... and need some help on keeping accurite records. am I correct in assuming that P-1 = Parent stock, F-1 = 1st gen, and can anyone tell me how to label the rest on paper such as 3rd and 4th gen or back-crosses etc.....Any help would be appreciated. Oh by the way these test hatches are only for me to find out if the whites I have are recessive and if my black stock is E/E or ER/ER and so on . I am still very new to this.[​IMG]
