    I have someone thats willing to give me as many eggs as I want she has lots of chickens but a lot of diffrent kinds of chickens too does it matter when youre incubating and hatching eggs if there darwins grab bag?
    I also have someone willing to give me banty eggs <dont know what kind of banty but Im guessing mixes of those maybe to but they are 4H banties if that says anything>
    So would mixed breeds and mixing eggs< If I ever make up my mind about homemade or bought bator> just like putting whatever breed of egg in the bators?

    A chicken is a chicken, won't make any difference.

    I am just hatching a load of mixed, or "Mutts" as I call them, as my first hatch. I didn't want to try the expensive eggs first. It is a cheap way to get everything right and learn.
