    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan [​IMG]

    If they are pullet eggs from young hens who have just started laying, it is better to wait a few months until the eggs become larger as pullet eggs tend to produce smaller chicks and have poorer hatchability. Visit the Learning Center for more good information on raising and hatching chicks.
