Is there any reason why I should not try hatching out a pullet egg? Just curious
Pullets just aren't pro egg layers yet and the ratios of nutrients in the egg and the size and shape of the eggs can be a little off. So my understanding is they might hatch but they might not. Have you ever cracked open a pullet egg and noticed the yolk is huge compared to the white? That's how some of mine are.

Understandable. I always have heard not to use them, but know it makes sense why. Thanks!
