    Are Pullet eggs capable of being fertilized and hatched like normal size eggs??

    If they are very small, you may encounter problems because the chick doesn't have enough room to fully develop and hatch. I generally will not incubate a standard size chicken egg that is smaller than .7 ounces.

    Yes, you can hatch fertile pullet eggs. I have hatched "first," eggs before, without a problem. Good luck!
