    I may sound like a fool, but I have to ask. Do bantam eggs hatch in the same amount of time (21 days) as the standard eggs?

    Yep. [​IMG] A chicken is a chicken is a chicken... Though sometimes they may hatch a day earlier than expected.

    Everything but 1 batch of my seramas has. My japanese bantams and bantam EE all hatch at exactly 21 days. I've even incubated standard and jap eggs together and had them all hatch at the same time. Seramas are the only chickens that consistently tend to go early. Even then my hatches were late day 20 to day 21 except these last ones that hatched on day 19.

    I was curious if they require different humidity than the regular sized eggs since they are so small. Do they have a tendency to dry out faster?
