    Posted this before in wrong subject!! If you can help please do so..

    So in most cases I have heard... bantams generally hatch earlier. Today is day 19 for my white silkies and have had no pip.... tomorrows day 20 so I should expect them tomorrow right? Anyone who has had bantams hatch later please tell me their experience!

    I do not have bantams, but I have seen a lot of people on here who's bantams have hatched after day 21. I have never heard that bantams hatch earlier.

    21 days I typical for chickens in general. are they in an incubator? It can really depend on temp etc. Also the day you put them in is day zero. I would not be alarmed for ANY reason to have no PIPs at day 19, regarless of bantam or not, [​IMG]
