    I will be hatching my first Auracanas in a few days and believe they are not the easiest of eggs to hatch. Anyone with any experiences please.

    They are not realy harder to hatch than others. It is just more will not hatch than others. There is nothing you can do about it just wait and hope. Are they your eggs or did you get them from some one? Are they true Araucanas, Were the parents tuffed? All this makes a difference. Good luck with them Brad

    Devil dog is right, it depends on what the parent stock is. Where did you get them?

    Thankyou both for that.The parents are tufted. They are lavender bantams coming from the Orkney Isles (Scotland)and the eggs are around C2 in the British Araucana Club egg colour reference chart
