    I have a Silkie hen sitting on an egg that is getting close to hatch time. I am not sure but I swear I felt the egg moving in my hand or rather the chick. Is that possible?

    Quote:Yes, the chick does a lot of kicking and twisting to get in position to hatch. You'll see the eggs rocking in the incubator sometimes when they're getting ready to hatch.
