I am going to breed my chickens and I was wondering a few things. 1. I have just found out that the father of my new chickens may be a cross and possibly may not even be a Silkie at all (pic at bottom), can I breed whatever else is in them out of them? I know it sounds confusing Hubby is a dairy farmer and he was telling me that with cows you can breed a cow that is Jersey x Freisan with a Jersey and keep doing that with each new calf and you will eventually get all Jersey, can you do that with chickens? Will that same rule apply if I do that with my new chickens I'm getting if I get a Silkie rooster? And if so how much would a Silkie rooster be? 2. Can you get deformed chicks from inbreeding? Will I then have to separate the new chicks when they old enough to lay (and perhaps new roosters) from there parents?
