    I was talking to my neighbor again today, and I asked him what he meant by " I hope they hatch good, idk about them.." and he told me he got them hens from murray mcmurray or something like that, so there hybrid? and there a mix between RIR and buff orpington.... he said at the factory them most likely bred them, like inbreeding possibly.... idk. so thats what I had to say do you think the chicks will hatch healthy, or just hatch in general?

    thanks please respond soon [​IMG]

    Logically, what do you think the chance of inbreeding will be from a hatchery hatching thousands upon thousand of chicks? The eggs if fertile and if incubated properly will hatch with no problems. If you are breeding for egg production, they will be fine- maybe not quite as good as the parents but fine.
