    Can I mix sizes with hatching eggs. We have four Partidge Wyandotte eggs and six Belgium bantam eggs. Can I put them together under a Wyandotte? I am concerned that the larger chicks may bully the bantams when they hatch.
    Thanks

    From my experience, they won't have a problem as long as they grow up together.
