    Yes. Only caveat is that if one's BB hen is "waddling" hefty and you plan to let her set clutch rather than incubate yourself, make sure that she has PLENTY of soft bedding in base of nest, as both wt. & ungainly movement of a hen over 30 lb. can result in undue loss of eggs via breakage.

    Good luck on your "hybrids" & :welcome
