    i have a pair of black east indies and hopefully this spring they will be giving me babies and i was wondering if the siblings could be sold as pairs or do i need to find another pair to breed so the babies will not be related?

    They can. After the first breeding, however, I would only breed son back to mother and daughter back to father-not siblings.
