Sunday, 3 weeks ago, I started 36 Buff Orpington eggs. Over the 3 weeks, the temp fluxuated as much as 3 degrees. I feared the worst. Yesterday morning, we left, knowing the eggs shouldn't start hatching until tomorrow. When we returned today, 6 chick were just hatched out and 2 more were working hard. We now have 8 out and 3 working hard. I wonder if certain breeds hatch earlier? Also a friend told me that BO's are not early layers and not to expect eggs until Sept now. Any thoughts?
