    Im planning on getting a male and female pair but i want to know a few things.

    1. How many chicks will they have a year?

    2. Can you keep their chicks with the parents, even when they become adults?

    3. Will the parents try to breed with their adult children?

    4. Will the children try to breed with each other?

    5. Will they become aggressive towards each other?

    Sorry if these questions sound dumb but i can't really find any other information about these things.

    Thanks:)

    1) Between 0 and 30. Some people have buttons for years and never have one that goes broody.
    2) Probably best not to. It might work for while, but problems are likely to occur.
    3) Most likely, yes.
    4) Yes, they will.
    5) If there are both males and females together, I think they will, unless they have a very large enclosure.
