    I have 12 bantam eggs in the incubator. Everything is going great. I set them Friday night, March 23rd making Saturday Day 1.

    April 10th will be Day 18 and lockdown but I read somewhere that Bantam eggs hatch sooner. Should I still use the 10th as the day for lockdown?

    I'm really nervous and excited too.

    i usally go into lock down day 16 or 17 with my silkies. sometimes they will hatch before than sometimes will even go up to day 21. it all depends on the temp and humidity
