    We are going to order some Bourbon red poults this spring probably 15 and keep 3 or 4 over winter to have our own poults next year. Will the genetics be okay if I just order from one hatchery?

    Yes, linebreeding or inbreeding is how people breed if they want a certain trait. Add a new bloodline in 2 years or so
