Can I incubate bantam and normal sized eggs together?

    I got some Bantam Ameraucanas eggs and some normal Jersey Giant eggs and threw them both in the incubator together. Is there anything wrong with this? I tried to spread them out evenly so the temp might stay even throughout. Any input would be greatly appreciated. These are my first eggs/chickens ever so hoping for a good hatch.

    You'll be fine incubating large fowl eggs and bantam eggs at the same time. Just watch out for the chicks when they hatch; you might want to separate the bantams because of their smaller size and more delicate nature.
