Quail Interbreeding

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Do quail have interbreeding issues if you breed the hatchlings from the same rooster, but different hens?  This could possibly happen when there is one male to 5-7 hens.  Do you folks find it best to hatch your own eggs or get a new batch from a professional breeder?  Has anyone had a problem with stock weakening or deformities d/t possible interbreeding?

 

Thank You,

it is possible to interbreed for a few generations but you don't want to do it for more because then that is where you start having the genetic issues
