How To Change a Mating's Set Up Date

If you accidentally entered the wrong Mating Set up Date when you created your Mating, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Mating List
  2. Select the check box of the Mating whose Set Up Date need to be changed
  3. Click Edit Matings
  4. On the Edit Mating Record page, change the Set Up Date using the calendar
  5. Click Save+Stay (or Save+Back) to save to the database



  • When changing the Mating's Set Up Date consider if you also need to change the Breeders' Date Mated  --- see image below for location of the two dates.
  • When a Mating Record is first created, these two dates are automatically set to the same date.
  • Once the Mating Record is created, these two dates become "decoupled" - changing one date does not result in the automatic changing of the second date. 
  • The reason why is because if you subsequently add a new breeder into the Mating Cage (e.g. if one breeder dies a month into the Mating, and you add in a replacement breeder), this new breeder's Date Mated will be a different date to the original Mating Set Up Date. Hence these two dates are distinct.
