This post is not to start any type of argument and is intended for experienced breeders only please:
I am currently working towards breeding patternless albinos and am about to hatch my first generation hets from an albino and patternless mom and pop. I have heard and read many differing opinions on the subject of breeding siblings to one another. For instance, I copied this statement from Ron Tremper's website: "Line breeding or breeding siblings together is not detrimental. My colony of non-albinos has been inbred and line bred for 25 generations with no ill effects."
I'm not a large scale breeder and do it only for the enjoyment and experience of breeding; if there is any possibility of a poor result at all I would completely avoid this type of breeding. however, if it has had no ill effects in any of your experiences, then why not make my job easier; working towards patternless albinos.
Thank you for your time and suggestions.
