    I was checking out my silkie eggs this morning and it looked if as 3 of the eggs that are on day 14 were rocking??? My temps have been a lil high around 101-102 but if I pull one of the red plugs it stays between 100-101. Could they have developed faster due to the temps?

    that is true a higher temp will make them hatch early but also with my bantams they seem to hatch early no matter what but this is not true for everyone, also it may not show but since these eggs first start growing they are moving inside, what you are seeing is them starting to get into position ti hatch so it is fine, it is a little early but do not worry about it just remember movement= chicks just keep an eye on them
