Projects adds a whole new dimension to the MorphMarket platform. Enthusiasts can now browse, search, and get alerts on breeding activity. Users can discover and engage with animals prior to their listing for sale. Right now Projects include offspring groups and in the future will even include pairings!
Using projects will be familiar because it parallels the system already in place for listings.
- Browse: On the trait index page, there's a new tab called Projects. Toggle to this tab to see counts of projects per species and trait.
- Search: Explore all the offspring by breeders using many of the same powerful filters available to Listing search. Offspring cards display information about pairing, offspring count and birth dates.
- Alert: Save searches to get alerted by phone or email new offspring are produced which match the criteria.
The project search page provides a simple interface for you to explore clutches & litters by searching, filtering and sorting. On desktop, the controls are along the top and left sidebar of the screen. On mobile, most of the search controls are under the "sliders" button.
The search bar at the top of the page lets you quickly filter projects using keywords to match their title or animal ID.
Many detailed filters are supported. This can be seen under the controls button; (mobile) or left-sidebar (desktop).
|Location||Projects in a given region. For the United States, filtering by state is supported as well.|
|Category||Limit to projects of a certain animal type.|
|Genes & Traits|| Included Traits: potential offspring must include all of the given traits.
Any trait form: if enabled, potential offspring traits may match in any form of the gene. For example, Clown would match Het Clown as well.
Excluded traits: potential offspring could not include this trait.

Breeders can get their offspring into this system by adding it via the Offspring Manager. This is accessed through the Offspring item on the menu or by the egg icon in the sidebar.
Offspring groups which meet these criteria will show up publicly for users to see:
- Visibility must be set to Public. Just like with listings, you can choose which items are visible to users and which are for your eyes only.
- Groups need to have at least one parent assigned.
- Either one of the parents or the group needs to have a photo.
- This feature is available to breeders with at least a Basic membership.
How does trait match work?
As explained above, the traits filters on potential traits in the offspring of the pairing. So a pairing where one parent has "het hypo" would not match "het hypo" directly since it could only produce possible hets. It would also match "het hypo" if "any trait form" is chosen.
How can I enable location support?
To determine your location for filtering to animals near you or to sort results by distance to you, you must give our site permission to access your location. This is a browser setting. This article shows where this setting can be found in various browsers.
