If you breed a purebreed rooster to split hens are your offspring purebreed?
no, they would only be 3/4...technically speaking they will never be purebred after that, because there will always be that tiny bit of 'other' blood in there....
Quote:...that being said, there's no such thing as a purebred, because everything was made from something else and outcrossing is a normal part of breeding. Most feel that 6 or 8 generation is enough time to eliminate most unwanted features.
If you're talking about color, however, breeding a pure to splits will give you 50% pure, 50% splits.
