    So with the chicks that we have hatching today and tomorrow. do I have to keep the roosters that I have now away from these chicks. or will the be ok, because i dont want any weird chickens if we decide to hatch out more eggs later??

    I'm sorry, it may just be the A. F. Day abbreviations throwing me off, but I am so not getting what you are asking?

    yes that is what i am wondering fathers with daughters and brothers with mothers even though I have 17 hens so it is a on and 17 shot that they will breed with its mother and what about brother and sister.

    The way I type it out it sounds a little weird, But do i have to be concerned with the imbreeding between them or is that not a problem with chickens?
