    Hello everyone..

    I was reading up on Line Breeding but it left me with one burning question...

    Are you suppose to start out with stock from different lines so you are not breeding brothers and sister? I am not 100% sure my stock is from different lines...

  2. I always start out with stock from different lines , but sometimes you really dont know if you get them from hatery or etc.

    If you do not know if they are from differant lines , you can still breed them together just dont breed bro and sis from their offspring .Just put the pullets with their father and etc.

    hope that helps some.
