do small eggs hatch first?

I am not sure if it is just coincidence or not, but I had two bantam eggs that were noticeably smaller than my other bantam eggs and they have hatched first. Is this the norm?
I wouldn't say it's the norm, I've had bantam eggs hatch late under broody hens before, but I did find that smaller eggs often hatch a bit sooner. I had 4 small eggs hatch on day 19 under a broody recently and my MIL's teeny tiny bantams' eggs sometimes hatched on day 16!
