    Quote:this may sound wierd, but the eggs are getting progressively smaller as she lays, so i just threw all the ones shes laid so far in and im gunna see how that goes
    after the first egg se waited three days before laying a second one, then she waited two days before the next one, and then after that shes been laying every day since friday so hopefully i will be able to collect plenty of eggs from them

    Aren't they supposed to be smaller later in the season/year?

    Definately, Have had a few here at 19, but most are 21. I cook them off at normal bantam temps too though, as my incubators have a large variety of breeds in them at all times, people with JUST seramas, often bump it up a bit for them, probley where the 19 comes from as higher temps create shorter incubation periods.
