Woohoo! I'm so excited to see this hatch result. These are my F2 from the Speckled Sussex X Buff Orp jubilee project. These eggs are sibling crosses of the F1s. They were due today, but started hatching a day early and the one bator is full of chicks already this morning. I started with 59 eggs, found 1 blood ring at candling, so 58 eggs in lockdown, divided between 2 Genesis hovabators. The early hatch is quite unusual, as all of my other eggs hatch pretty much when I expect them to. The only explanation I can think of is the hybrid cross plus the pullet eggs equals super spunky chicks that cannot wait to get out of the egg.
