    Is the hatch time really 19 days for this little breed? I am glad someone shared that I had no idea and have 9 eggs motoring along in my bator so when is lock down?

    I have heard that too, also read somewhere that you don't stop turning them but not sure if thats true? Would be interested to know as I have 28 eggs currently in my incubator [​IMG]

    I have one Serama chick (about a month old now) that hatched on day 19. I had several other breeds' eggs being brooded at that time, and they all hatched between days 19-20. Whether they would have spread out more, time-wise, if the weather hadn't been so hot at that time, I really don't know!
