I wasn't sure where to post this question. If this is the wrong place I apologize. Is it okay to keep a rooster with it's mother hen? My GLW bantam hatched out her first clutch, and the 4 babies are about 3 weeks old now. I can already tell that 2 are roosters and 2 are hens. The daddy, an old english game bantam, is no longer with us and I would like to keep both of the roosters so that I can have chicks again next year. But, my husband has seen on Craig's List where people are giving away roosters because they don't want them to breed with the moma. Is this a personal decision, or is there danger involved with letting roosters "mate" with their own mother's. Sounds gross, but I know things are different with animals. If anyone could shed some light on this I would really appreciate it!!
