    I've been hatching my Marans eggs alongside my other eggs for a long time and they do just fine.

    I hatch mine together also. silkies, banty cochins, big ol turken eggs, olive eggs, turkey eggs, all together like one big happy family. I won't pretend that I get fantastic hatches though, because I work odd hours and use cheapo incubators and sometimes don't even look at them for a few days at a time, but still, I get decent hatches considering, usually a little of everything hatches. I run my bators around 45% humidity and 102 still air, with a hygrometer/thermometer sitting on top of the eggs on a square of wire mesh so it stays relatively in the same place to keep a consistent measure of temps.
