 A new mating with the same name as the cage will be created automatically.


4. Add Mating From Cage Review/Search (Use if Automatic breeding is NOT enabled): You can select a breeding cage already set up and create a mating.  From list of cages, select the breeding cage with males/females, then click the Mating button.  Proceed to mating Setup.  Your cages and animals are already selected, you can name the mating and save .


Select the desired breeding cage from the cage list, and click the mating button.  Your animals and cage are already selected; proceed to entering mating information.
