This is my rooster Tyrone, I bought him and his sisters when they were about 3 months old from someone with a lot of different breeds inside one coop (there would have been like at least 15 different types there + about 5 roosters of different breeds).
Pretty sure my hens are both 100% australorp, but my rooster isn't black or grey, so not sure if he's mixed or if he looks like some other purebred breed?

One of my hens is getting all broody -not sure if they've been up to anything-, but don't want to let her sit on those eggs if she's related to Tyrone....

Any insight would be helpful! ~ Thanks in advance~

You don't need to worry about relatives with chickens when hatching. Breeders go quite a few generations before adding in different lines for diversity. Breeding chicks back to parent stock is how you snuff out hidden genes etc.
