    They are leghorn eggs from trader joes.

    If the temp had gotten high enough BEFORE you got them they could have started developing before you set them so they could be closer to 21 days than you think they are....just a thought

    I have a still air incubator and I have my temperature at 99-101. It got to 101.8 once but they are now doing GREAT!! Some people said they couldn't see any movements at day 16. I can see em move clearly. I hope they hatch earlier. But ofcourse I want them to be healthy as well

    I have 3 smaller eggs and 10 big store bought eggs. The store bought ones are pretty much the ones that are shaking. Opposite around XD

    I have had chicks hatch on day 18. I agree if they were stored in a warm place they could have gotten a head start on development. Also if the temp stayed on the high side they can hatch a day or two early. I have some due to hatch on Sunday. Good luck and have fun.
