    I have all BR's. I plan on having broodies and raising my own chicks. Do I have to worry about Dad and his daughter, like in dogs or is it that big of an issue in chickens?

    i think father/daughter is ok, but i would not breed siblings
    i have done father /daughter with Silkies and have gotten some beautiful offspring... after that though i would sell the babies
