Not sure if this is the right forum...if not, mods, please move... Anyway, I haven't read much about breeding. This would not be for showing or anything, just interested in how inbreeding might effect future hatches, chick health, and egg laying. I just recently hatched out a few eggs from my roo and a couple of my hens. I've since nearly filled the incubator with 18 purchased eggs, and another 12 eggs from my hens. If successful, I'm sure I'll keep, at the very least, a couple of those hens that hatch. Now my question is, if my current roo, who fathered those hens, then mates and I try to hatch those eggs...can I expect issues? How far down the inbreeding line will I begin to see problems?
