I have what may be a silly question...I am new to the chicken world, and decided right off that I wanted to have d'uccles. I somehow managed a cockerel out of a TSC mix last spring, and have more recently acquired some pullets. A friend of mine had told me that if you bred two bearded chickens together the offspring wouldn't live. Is this true? I can't seem to find anything that says this, but perhaps I'm not searching with the right key words. Breeder knowledge would be appreciated.
