(The dreaded) Paperwork

The dreaded paperwork – but absolutely essential for keeping accurate records.

Some might say that I use a very convoluted method of keeping records for my birds, others will do similar things.

That said, it’s difficult to keep records up to date if you don’t really enjoy this aspect of the hobby – like me ! Even realising the fact that I have time on my hands nowadays, I still find it to be a pain.

I designed my system many years ago when I was first introduced to Microsoft excel. I loved to make spreadsheets of all descriptions, so with this in mind I took it into my hobby. It’s no real difference to other methods on the market, however, because of the fact that I print my own stuff, I colour code the banner at the top of the pages which corresponds with the current BS ring colour.
