    I have a broody BA, she is very intent and I haven't tried to break her, just letting nature take its course. I just ordered 3, few week-old black-spanish poults and plan on getting them Wednesday. Should I attempt to see if she would "accept" them? Or would it just be safer to breed them seperately...I only ordered 3, so I want to make sure they are okay [​IMG] Any advice or experience will be appreciated!
