Can standard and bantam eggs go in the bator together?

    Yep. The bantams will sometimes hatch a little before the others, especially if they are really small bantams, but in general, they have the same hatch time, I understand. My standards start hatching on Day 20 all the time anyway.

    I've incubated both together in the past. I have some in the bator now with some orpington eggs.
