Can someone please tell me the gender of this about 15 week old chick?
YAY! Out of 2 hatches and 7 chicks so far 5 are roosters and I didn't know about these 2 white ones. Can I ask you, if I keep this hen and her "father" would mate with her and one of her eggs would happen to hatch a chick, could you hve the innerbreeding problems? I don't know if you have that with chickens or not
As far i as have read, it appears there would not be, in general, any negative implications of inbreeding in the manner you suggest. I believe that it is practised for those people wishing to get "bluer" eggs from their EEs, for example.
I would agree, pullet!
She's a pullet.
I've bred father to daughter and haven't had any issues. As long as the parent stock are healthy and hardy, free of defects, you should be good to go. If you had birds that were sickly, or just not healthy overall, any defects, etc it would be a big no-no.
