    do serama eggs hatch early and if so do i need to put them in lockdown early? what day? i'm asking because i have been forced to do a staggered hatch ( because of shipping issues [​IMG] )i have one group of ee eggs in the bator. i have another group of marans eggs arriving monday and the serama eggs most likely arriving on wed or thurs. my plan is to build a hatcher to move the eggs that need to go to lockdown in when the time comes but thinking on it i dont know when that would be for the serama eggs. [​IMG] all the eggs were bought within a 12 hour time frame so silly me i thought they would all arrive close to the same time considering the distance and amount of time it would take the usps to deliver.

    Unfortunately, I have no advice, but Im in the same situation as you (expecting 2 different shipments of eggs and already have one batch in the bator) and Im wondering what to do. I dont have seramas though, so Im not sure on that one. Im sure someone with good advice will pop in here and tell you.

    We had one hatch on the 18th and the other 3 on 19th but our temps were a little high. They were our first Serama hatch and we locked down on the 17th......

    My seramas all hatched between day 19 and 20. Definitely a good idea to lock down early with these little guys!

    Exactly! They also prefer a bit higher humidity for hatching.
    So YES they hatch earlier. 19 days​
