    A few days early is fine. Set date is only important for the hatch rate contests.

    For the best hatch rate contest, do the chicks have to hatch on New Years? Or can they be early or late? It would be hard to get them to hatch at exactly the right time. Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    2 days before and after set day. Not hatch day since they can hatch at different times.

    There are some white Americana eggs on ebay. Also some Lavender split Auracanas (no ear tufts).
