Hello, I have a question! Ok, with dog breeding you never breed brother/sister because it is too close and considered inbreeding. You can breed half siblings, under certain situations, and this is considered line breeding. My question is this, how does that work with chickens? I know with fish you want to breed brother/sister, etc. and it's good because otherwise they will "revert" back to their more wild forms. I want to keep bantam cochins and I needed to know how closely they can breed. Do I have to purchase two outcrosses to start with or can I just order a "batch" from the net and start a flock that way? If you can point me in the direction of a website, post(s) or book to read I would be very thankful! Thanks in advance!
