You would often hear the term inbreeding in a breeding context, both animal and plant. Actually what is the inbreeding, especially in captive birds? What are the positive and negative impacts for which we develop captive?

Inbreeding in captive birds is a reproduction process that occurs due to the marriage of two birds with the same genetic line or have the same parents or siblings. Example is the male parent with a child is, chicks with the female parent, children with children, grandchildren with grandparents and so on.

Inbreed marriage can increase the risk of children down the recessive trait of birds that damage. If a decline in genetic (general health) of a bird population, it is called inbreeding depression. The nature of the carrier which causes a decrease in quality of offspring is usually removed through a certain process which is also known as genetic purging or “genetic cleansing”.

Marriage inbreeding or breeding between relatives in everyday language the technical term or inter-Muhrim incest. Understanding inbreed in biology also includes marriage or conception itself (selfing or self fertilization).

Kinship (Relatedness or relationship) is usually quantified by some measures (such as konsanguinitas coefficient of jacquard, or inbreeding coefficient relatives coefficient, and covariance kinship).

The breeder birds (that have been developed in Thailand or in the West for example) eliminates unwanted characteristics in certain bird populations, which is also accompanied by the destruction of what is deemed “unworthy descendants”, performed particularly when trying to create new properties in certain birds .

If you are already an expert in the “sort and separate the” nature of a particular lineage in birds, please say you menangkar birds from breeders or descendants of same. But if it still lay or a beginner, my advice, marries the birds from their parents or grandparents who are different.

Today many people buy a pair of male-female birds from captivity and even from the same nest since she was a puppy. Then a pair of birds were raised and an arranged marriage to bred. In the context of the development of offspring as my description above, the enlargement and be continued pairing of birds from the same broodstock should be avoided.
