    My serama eggs take 19 days under a broody hen.

    All chicken eggs should hatch in 21 days. Smaller eggs perhaps up to a day early, larger eggs up to a day longer if temperatures are correct.

    Serama bantams take 19 days; sometimes less and sometimes more depending on line. Mine consistently take 19 days.

    xs 2 while bantam breeds are known for hatching a day or two earlier, it should not be expected and lockdown times should not change. With any chicken hatches, even standards you could hatch anytime between days 19-22. A lot depends on the accuracy of your temps. My bator tends to run slightly warm and my hatches usually hatch out the majority between days 19-20, both my bantams and my standards.
