Bantam eggs for lockdown question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have chicken eggs in the incubator on day 15 with some of them being bantams. I've been seeing that bantams are known for hatching earlier than the 21 days (around 19). Should I put them in lockdown tomorrow or wait for a couple more days? Thanks in advance

I never lockdown before day 18. Unless they pip earlier than day 18, I would not lockdown early. Mine pipped and hatched day 19.
