  11. Performing Breeds
    Hello. The net says that canker can be bred out of the flock. I know ACV is suppose to help prevent it. When the egg from canker parents were put under normal pairs, the chicks developed canker. I currently believe it is possible to breed out canker : any thoughts? Thanks.
