I hatched out 9 chicks from my hens and rooster sadly 6 hens and that rooster got taken by predators during our move so I now have 3 of the original hens (well 2 really as one has cancer and is just a pet at this point) and I have their 9 babies well ofcourse I hatched 6 cockriels and 3 pullets. 1 of these cockriels is sooooo beautiful never seen colors like his. so I want to keep him but I also want to hatch my own chicks every spring. can he breed with his siblings mother /aunts etc. I know on the ranch growing up we had one rooster but dad always got new chicks from feed store in spring.
