    I believe, being so small, that they hatch a little earlier than other chickens do, day 19 maybe? I've done one batch and I can't remember.

    Mine generally hatch around day 20. I don't do anything super special until they hatch. Gotta grind up chick crumbles for them and use a waterer with a quail base. They are too small to eat regular chick food and might drown in a regular water base

    should I bring up the humidity earlier and stop the turner earlier? I'm on day 14 NOW.

    Not until day 18. I don't do anything any different. Just be advised sometimes they hatch at day 20. But the rest is the same as for any breed.

    Really hoping for a pullet to go with Smidge and Smudge. My plans are for a couple of trios. The breeder I got the free trial eggs (4) from said her breeders are laying very well now and she had 100% fertility at the last test . IMG_20180401_050357.jpg

    5 were clear. Is mating difficult with Seramas?
