    Just wondering if certain breeds tend to hatch earlier than others. I have some white leghorns in the 'bator with Silver Laced Wyondottes... the Leghorns are pipping and hatching today, on day 19! Just curious, since the leghorns mature faster in general.

    Thanks!

    Well I am not an expert but i have heard that some breeds do. But also you have to look at the days the eggs were layed were probably different whole bunch of other factors that could affect hatching time.
