    I have 6 Americana hens and one Americana rooster, all about one year old. I believe they are pure breds. If I raise chicks from them, and then breed the chicks together will I have any inbreeding problems?

    Breed the chicks back to their parents ie mother son father daughter. You can inbreed but line breeding is better.
