    I've had some chicks hatch on the 23rd day and plenty of them hatch before 21 days because they were bantams.[​IMG]

    I put 60 in the hatcher this morning at 10:30 that are supposed to hatch Wed 5/18/11 and there were some already pipping .
    these are just a barnyard mixture from my pens but no bantoms all heavy chickens

    I have had them hatch on day 19 and 20. I just assume now that they will hatch early.
