In-and-In Breeding 101

Different ways of breeding have already emerged to come up with a pure bred game fowl. The goal is to produce a fowl armed with all the departments needed for a great fight.


The two kinds, opposite one of crossing and in-and-in breeding, are always compared to produce good stags with different claims of success. We’ll talk about in-and-in breeding in this article.

Breeding today would no longer produce pure breed game fowls as breeds today have one or more crosses. Years of breeding are needed and intelligence of the breeder is a must with great care and courage in studying the selection of breeding stock.

The finest horses, cattle and sheep for example are produced by in and-in breeding. In-and-in breeding is the mating of near relatives but avoiding the first degree.

In preserving desired characteristics, close breeding is necessary but it should not be abused to avoid losing their natural body strength. Breeding them for too long would affect their motions.

There are two practices of in-breeding. In England, they do once in and once out, avoiding incest, while the Americans practice twice in and once out.

Remember that long continued in-breeding with close relatives would diminish bone and reduce the size of muscular form and proportions of its offspring. This draws us to the recommendation to still breed out to strangers to keep up their size and bone. As this is accomplished, breeding to the closest bloodline is possible with refined bones and muscles. By this simple process of enlarging and refining, we get the most substance in the least compass.

The law of nature provides the strongest one would lead the flock and the king would be dethroned by someone courageous young fowl. This reconciles with the system of in-breeding and out crossing.

By the end, we all aim for breeding improvement and do whatever we can to produce great warriors of our time.
