    I have seen some ads online stating that their serama eggs hatch in 19 days and to stop turning on day 15-16

    Has anyone hatched them on day 19? is this a pile of bologne? and the truth is that it is 21 days as with all chickens?

    I think it's a sales pitch

    Not sure about the seramas, but I have heard it said that bantams usually hatch a little earlier than standard sized chickens. I have never hatched bantam eggs, so I don't know that from experience. Just something I have read.

    They often start hatching on day 19, so you stop turning them on day 16.

    I had one hatch on day 18, a hyperactive cockerel, but they usually start pipping on day 19, and hatch on day 20.
