I am getting ready to breed this Spring, with a specific goal in mind. I have read Holderread's Storey's Guide, of course, many many times, and done lots of online research. But one thing I haven't seen a lot of information about is how much inbreeding is okay, and when it's necessary to outcross, and best methods for doing so... and so on. For instance, is it okay to breed siblings to each other? What about father/daughter mother/son etc breedings? How large a flock is a large enough gene pool to prevent problems? Anyone else breeding for specific goals? What are your goals, and how do you avoid overly inbreeding? Thanks for any tips & thoughts & suggestions for resources!
