Ok, so here's the scoop (btw, Hi! Nice to meet you!) so my dad supposedly just got a very rare breed of chicken. The lady said that there are only 5 of these in the U.S. and my dad has two of them. Red dominique hen and rooster. So, I have to ask some questions about this... 1) Are these really rare? 2) How would he best breed these to continue the line if they are (the hen is the rooster's mother and I am not into interbreeding, really, but I understand that sometimes it is a necessary evil) 3) The rooster has some crooked toes. I was wondering if anyone knew if this was a genetic defect or if it could have been caused by bad diet and/or slippery ground in the brooder box. So... what should I do? Anyone have any good answers? Pictures below: and the hen Thanks for your time!
