    I ordered eggs off of ebay and i got pullet eggs not to happy I mean they are the 3rd the size of my hen eggs but I put them in the incubator with 4 of my mutt eggs from my 2 year old hens to see what happens. When I candled everyone yesturday the mutt eggs have an air sac a dark area and lots of room for growing still. The pullet eggs you see an air sac and then most of the egg is already full with growth! But the growth is about the same size as the normal mature eggs from my hens. So my question is will the pullet eggs try to hatch to early because they run out of space or will they most likely be deformed birds with messed up legs from being squished, or will they just be smaller chicks than my mutt chicks? or do I just have to wait 2 weeks and see what happens?

    like the first few eggs a young hen lays that are a lot smaller than normal mature hens eggs.
