    I would like to breed the BO's I got from Ideal, but should I be concerned about in-breeding? I have one Barred Rock Roo that I kept. Should I breed with him instead?

    I'm not sure how large the flocks of Orpingtons Ideal's eggs come from are but I'm certain that they're large enough to provide plenty of genetic diversity. I think you'll be safe breeding them.
