I hope this is the correct place to ask this question. I purchased some White Chantecler chickens last year and kept 10 hens and one rooster. I have hatched 12 chicks with this rooster from random eggs from the 10 hens. Next spring can I save one rooster from these chicks and hatch eggs from the 11 hens or is this considered inbreeding. I realize all of the chicks are from one rooster but they come from different hens. I have spoken to a local farmer who thinks it would be best not to use a rooster from these chicks but get one from a hatchery. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. P.S. I am not hatching to show.
