    Who told you that bantam eggs take less time to hatch? I have hatched both standards and bantam, lots of them, and they always take the same amount of time!

    It saiid that on the instructions with the incubator. The last hatch of bantams i did they took about 19 days. I've only done 1 hatch of standards and there were so many they hatched over a couple of days.

    It will be fine. If you are worried, you can always just lockdown a day early.

    I bet those lemon blues will be gorgeous! [​IMG]
