    How do you handle "In Breeding" with your birds? I could use some good advice on a Breeding Manage Plan, for homers.

    Inbreeding in not really a problem in most domestic birds.. such as chickens, ducks and pigeons.

    You should not breed brother to sister.

    But you can breed parent to offspring no problem.

    After many generations.. years ahead.. you could introduce some new birds of the same breed to add vigor to your flock... but make sure they are very good quality ones... otherwise all your hard work breeding for good birds will be wasted.

    Breeding original parents to their young then their young so down n so down just using original stock to young n young of young down line rill in whole of own family, then if hit inbreeding wall of undesirable degradation down line eventually after dozens to hundreds of generations, then have best next families to cross to.
