    I wouldn't worry about it too much. If it's 1st gen. crossing, the kids should be just fine, and so should she. Is her udder growing any, or have you felt for kids yet?

    Well she looks wide enough for multipuals so that's good - makes for easier kidding.

    Being bred by her dad can bring out the bad faults of both and the good points. Other then that I don't see any danger in it.

    You will need to separate you buck now that you know he is still fertile. You don't need him breeding them back again.

    You will have to have him surgically castrated if you want him a wether for sure

    How old is she? If she is big enough she should be fine. I bought a 7-month-old Nigerian doe that was (accidentally) bred to her father. She kidded at 1 year with a gorgeous black-and-tan buckling. Not knowing much then, we had him wethered, but now I wish we had left him intact, he's so nice looking!
    Many experienced breeders linebreed (breed close relatives) on purpose in order to bring out their best traits. But like Stacey said, it can also bring out undesirable traits.

    Father to daughter is not nearly as bad as brother to sister. Usually the first generation of inbreeding is fine. It is the multiple generations of it that cause most of the problems. :ponder:

    Good Luck and Happy Kidding. :kidblack: :kidblack:
