'It is easy to dismiss record keeping on a computer as just a sophisticated substitute for pen and paper and in some instances that might be true – but stir ZooEasy into the equation and you are talking chalk and cheese. ZooEasy has opened up a whole new world for me, as far as my Border canaries are concerned. Rather than leafing through the pages of a book or a stack of record cards, I can now study five generations of my Borders on a single screen. The relationships of individual birds become instantly clear.
Perhaps it should not be surprising, but it is amazing how closely related many of today’s Borders are. You can buy two birds from different parts of the country and when their details have been typed into ZooEasy it can become immediately apparent that they a both from the same top breeder’s bloodline. Some breeders advocate not breeding too close, others say that unless you line breed you will never get anywhere. The beauty of ZooEasy is whichever approach you choose you will KNOW exactly what you are doing rather than just leaving things to chance.'
