    I'm looking for some new Pumpkin blood. I'd like to buy some birds not from Greenfire farms bloodlines. If you've got a pair or trio to part with I'd be interested. Thanks

    I appreciate your response. I actually have some pumpkins from Greenfire. I was just looking to add some "new blood" to the mix. Do you see any harm in close inbreeding? I have one roo two hens and some little ones I was thinking of breeding back to their parents. Thanks, Nick

    I'm sorry Nick....I should have read more carefully. If I were you I'd set up two lines. One with the "main" rooster and his female children and the other with Sons of the hens in another pen. Actually you could do three pens, but that might be hard for you to identify which belonged to whom. Extra sons (keep 2 as backup and sell the others).

    Then as you see you need new blood down the road, you could get eggs or other birds as needed. My husband is better at explaining how to do this set up, but I hope I'm clear. Thanks and have a blessed day. Nancy

    So, one pen, roo' and his daughters, and the second pen, mother(s), and son(s)? Then who would you pair those offspring with? The young from the opposite pen?
