    And I was wondering if they hatch out like bigger chicks or if there's any thing I need to do differently for them? I have a mini incubator and I'm only getting 3 or 4 bantams and 3 australorp eggs.

    Can you put different sized eggs in together?

    Congratz on the eggs! I Think it'll be totally fine to put them together depending on your incubator. Can you send a picture of the incubator with a 1 bantam and 1 normal sized egg?

    Also, they do hatch out as different sizes.

    I think you can see the bigger egg on the right and bantam on the left. It's a brinsea mini advance incubator. I hatched 5 out of 7 of the 1st batch I put in there 2 weeks ago. My only problem was when the hatchlings smothered one of the little pips that hadn't made it out yet. But I read that bantam eggs hatch a day early? So maybe I have that on my side. Thank you for your reply!!
