google drive has a knockoff excel, but i'm not sure if it has all the functionality you may use. and it's free if you have a google account :)

i've been using kintracks and yeah i have some of the same complaints. i've been hesitant to actually buy a program because to be honest, i keep fantastic paper records, but it'd be nice sometimes to have it all in one place on my computer as well. additionally, i am able to keep up with paperwork NOW...but when i expand i may not be able to. it's a shame the bunnytails mobile app isn't for android too, that'd honestly be worth me paying for in of itself. i may end up buying it too because it looks like it has more the functionality that i want.

I too use global pedigree. I still eventually want to get Evans, but ya girl is not made of money and I can't make myself splurge like that. One thing I like that wasn't mentioned: When building a pedigree, you automatically search the database for the ancestor you're trying to enter. When you have rabbits from larger, more widespread rabbitries, often times they're already in the database, and then that branch of the pedigree is automatically filled out!

For example, I have a rabbit from Linda Bell. When I put in his dam's ear number, she was the first result. Once I assigned her as his dam, my work for that side of the pedigree was done. It's also interesting to see which rabbits share heritage with yours.

I've been using Hutch for about six months now and I highly recommend it. Very easy to use, wonderful setup and sorting system for the rabbits, and you can print off custom pedigrees and cage cards. Any rabbits that are marked as sold/died/etc. get archived so they don't show up as being in your rabbitry, but you can still access all their info including pedigrees. I've been very happy with it so far and don't have any complaints. Not a bad price, either. For full use of the premium features, it's $40/year or $130 for a lifetime membership. I think the limited access version is $20/year or something like that.
I don't remember the web address, but you can probably just google it. They're on Facebook, too, last I heard.

I have kintraks and because my computer is old I have the full version for free. That being said, I don't use it as much as I thought I would. A lot of the complaints you have about it don't change with the full version. We use global right now as our main record keeping program although my main complaint is that the notifications pop up on the site but unless I log in every day, I don't see them. That an it's an all in one program... my OCD likes more organization. We will eventually get Evans. Just a matter of affording it
