    Bantams do have a tendency to hatch a day early, but this is really early. You may want to double check your bator temp with a tested thermometer. I would bet it is a degree high.

    Definatly a degree high I had problems in the past with poor and late hatches so I was testing it sittiing at 100.3. I thought that might make it a day early but 3?
