    As I'm nearing my Saturday hatch day, I've begun to wonder quite a few things. What's the earliest you've ever had an egg hatch (ex: Day 20)?

    My first hatch had all 5 chicks pop out on day 18. They were shipped eggs, arrived in Phoenix, at the beginning of August.

    Were they early, or did they incubate in transport? We will never know....

    The earliest I have had one to break the shell was mid day 17. He hatched on day 18 late. But I have had one hatch on day 18 early. If that doesn't count just let me know. Thanks [​IMG]

    All 5 of mine hatched on day 19. It was really hot here though-- I have one more broody "due" soon, and I'll be expecting hers around day 18 or 19 because it's even hotter.
