I know nothing about breeding chickens so here goes a few basic poultry breeding questions: It seems everyone as no issue backcrossing F1s with parent generations. This IS considered inbreeding, right? Can this be repeated many times? Can you safely cross F1s together? Its okay to inbreed chickens like this? I assume you should add a fresh cock or hen to the mix once in a while? The major question is how safe is it to cross related individuals and how long can I get away with it? Any references to professional breeding info would be awesome Thanks (yes I've researched my questions - but I gotta ask because inbreeding seems dangerous).
