we do it on the guinea pig forum, and thought it might be a good idea to bring it over... what you do is basically every month someone will start a thread for everyone to write out what litter's they've had. (i can volunteer to start the thread every month - prevents multiple threads)

so starting from May 1st, write out what litters you've had! for example (even though it's a march litter - i havnt had any born in may) :

Flo (black varigated) X Cameo (argente)
culled to 5,
3 does (2 agoutis and one argente vari)
2 bucks (one agouti and one agouti vari)

good plan?

Should be keeping all three of these, hopefully the buck will be good enough as I am desperate for another decent black stud buck.

Really interesting thread, It's good to know how everyone else deals with their litters.
