Hello, this is my first post on this great forum, I have just started to breed silky bantams. At present I only have 1 silky hen, 1 silky chick and 1 silky rooster My rooster is the son of the hen, they had 2 chicks who look great. 1 was a rooster who went to a loving home, the other is the chick who I wish to keep. Now what will happen if he sires the young daughter?? I hope im making sense! I guess what i need to know is when are they inbred?or linebred? I have purchased a dozen fertilised eggs which came in the post and 6 are under a broody langshire bantam and the rest are in an incubator. I have added these new eggs to introduce a new strain.
