Hello-

I am wanting to incubate some Butler eggs. From what I can gather, it appears it takes a little longer incubation period for them. How long does it really take? Does 24 days sound accurate?

I plan on 23 but have a brooder ready at 21 start see'n a few pips around there. but dont get excited till around 24 if you still have no pips.... your bator will have alot to do with time'n. A deg high = 22 days. A deg. low and you'll run long... Bill

That is interesting! Do you see a size difference between the groups?
