    This is our first time hatching eggs, we have always gotten hens when they are 4-6 months old. Our hen went broody friday and now has 6 eggs under her, 3 from saturday, 2 from sunday and 1 from this AM. We wanted 6 and hopefully 2 of them from our EE so this is perfect for us. But when I looked at them this AM when she got up to eat I noticed one was a little smaller than the others? Will they usually incubate/hatch ok still or should I switch it out with a more normal sized one laid this AM? Thanks for any info!
