Broods Due in Estrus

Estrus, Puppies, Breeding Colony allows you to track your colony in many ways.

One of the tracking functions is the menu item [Broods Due In Estrus].

Broods Due In Estrus allows the owner of the colony to capture the number of broods due in a period of time, and to mark if you are wanting to breed this time, or skip to ensure you have the capacity to breed as many broods as you may have coming into season.
