Inbreeding in not really a problem in most domestic birds.. such as chickens, ducks and pigeons.

 

You should not breed brother to sister.

 

But you can breed parent to offspring no problem.

 

After many generations.. years ahead.. you could introduce some new birds of the same breed to add vigor to your flock... but make sure they are very good quality ones... otherwise all your hard work breeding for good birds will be wasted.
