    We have two running around in the bactor and one zipping right now. All 3 are from one hen. The rest of the eggs nothing. I candled one and it had piped into the airsac and was moving. Do bantoms hatch faster then st?

    For me it was the smaller the egg the first to hatch. I know that bantams usually come earlier than your larger breeds. Good luck and can;t wait to see some pics

    The batams are hatched, the wyndotts have hatched (100% with both) And I have 15 mutts out and drying with more piping and zipping.
    Wow this is taking a long time!
