Hello and:welcome Yes sometimes they come early could be for a few reasons sometimes if temps are running slightly higher also some bantam breeds hatch sooner. What kind were they?
Congrats on your babies

I have Icelandics and they regularly pop out on day 19-20.

Smaller breeds will come out early and especially if your temps are running high.

from Alabama. Glad you joined us. It's not unusual to have chicks hatch a little early, especially if the temps were running a little high. Bantam breeds, like Silkies and Seramas, are also pretty bad about being early. Congrats on a great hatch
