    I have bantam/mix eggs under my broody Millie. The heat has been horrific and I am wondering if I am going to have an early hatch. I know bantam eggs can hatch early as well, these are from bantam roo/full sized hen so I don't know if they count, lol. Anyhow I am going to be out of town, hubby will be on baby duty and I am nervous about the hatch.

    Enjoy your out of town time and enjoy the babies when you return. [​IMG]

    If they hatch early, I do not think it would be due to heat (could very well be wrong [​IMG] [​IMG] ) - but due to the chick's own time table.

    Bantys do tend to hatch early. On my last hatch, they were piping on day 19, and most were out of the eggs by day 21 [​IMG] .
