    What to you think...my three bantam chicksQ[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]..if one of them is a cockeral and i decide to keep him...would he eventually mate with his sisters and mother, and if so, does that make a difference if they decide to hatch eggs in the future

    thanks in advance...first time chicken owner

    Yes, he would breed with them. I don't know about the consequences of that breeding. I'm sure some of the others will happily post along those lines.

    Lovely D'Uccle you have.
