    LOL, dont worry, you wont have problems with inbreeding in one generation and it is not uncommon to breed related birds. No two headed babies.

    The way to tell if the eggs are fertile is by looking for a very small white spot with a slightly larger ring around it... on the surface of the egg yolks. Blood spots are just caused by small hemorrhages that sometimes occur while the egg is being formed and are not an indicator of fertility.
