    Can you hatch pullet eggs? We hatched from our own girls last month - good sized brown eggs. But last week a lady gave me some ameracaunas to hatch, and they're already in the bator. Now, in hindsight, I realize that they are kinda small. At least compared to the eggs my girls give us. So, do ameracaunas lay smaller eggs and everything's ok - OR- are these pullet eggs that may not hatch? so stupid to ask so late [​IMG]

    You can candle them...worst case they just never hatch. If they are already in the bator...the "wait-and-see" method mgiht be your best option (with candling of course, since they may realize your nerves).
