    Well, why destroy them when you can eat them? Anyway, I don't think it really matters with poultry

    In chickens, There is not a problem with father to daughter or even father to grandaughter. Further then that I would start looking for genetics problems to start emerging.

    I just have to add that "incest" occurs between people and "inbreeding" occurs between animals. I find anthropomorphism frustrating, particularly when associated with a pejorative term such as incest.
