    It can happen... What breed are you hatching? If they are seramas they tend to hatch early... Also temps.. A little too high of temp will cause an early hatch.

    But more than likely, she just wanted to get out [​IMG]

    Seriously The rocking motion is the chick moving inside of the egg. It is getting ready to pip.
