    i tried to do a search on my question and couldn't find anything. can i successfully incubate LF and bantam eggs together? i normally keep my humidity at 38-40% days 1-18 and then 64ish% at lockdown. i normally have good hatch rates with local eggs. will this cause a problem? i have local and shipped LF eggs and local and shipped bantam eggs.

    I've incubated bantam and LF eggs together without any problems at all. They both have the same temp and humidity requirements and both incubate for the average 21 days.

    Go for it!

    In my experience the bantam eggs tend to hatch a day sooner. But that has never caused a problem for me.
