    If I put Serama eggs and standard Ameraucana eggs under a bantam Cochin, can she keep them uniformly warm? I wonder if the difference in sizes will cause a problem, or will her "undercarriage" conform to snuggle both size eggs?

    I don't think it should be a problem. I bet they will all be toasty. She will move them around and turn them anyway.
