    I have not hatched bantam eggs before. I now have some, and have gone ahead and put them in my Hova bator..with the temp being the same as for the bigger eggs..is this ok? Or do they need a lower temp. They are small, but not like the quail eggs I've seen. Guess I'm just not used to seeing such small little "diet" looking eggs. [​IMG]

    Same temp, same humidity. They MAY (or may not) hatch a day earlier than expected.

    Happy hatching!

    Quote:Thanks gryeyes...I had heard that..and noticed that they showed life before some other eggs I had in the same bator, that I had put in a day earlier.
