    Assuming temp is kept in the proper limits, what is your experience on chicks hatching early (or late). Just curious what to expect. Thanks!

    Mine are mostly always bantams, and I have many that hatch on day 20. Usually, most if not all are out by early day 21. Every once in a while there is a late hatcher (day 21 or later), but not very often.
