    Hi, I have a rooster and hen from same rooster but may or may not be from different mother hen. Does it matter if they are from the same rooster/hen if they hatch out eggs or will I get 3 legged or other deformities?

    ...if for show KNOW YOUR BLOODLINES.. is very important if full brother/sister... it will intensify traits. good and bad,. i've never heard of them having deformaties.. if not from the same hen- good to go.

    Just heard from my daughter. She's in the hospital and will have her baby by C-section tomorrow! I'm excited but a bit nervous. I don't know a thing about C-sections. It's my 2nd grandchild.[​IMG]
