    okay maybe its just me but I've never seen it but one of my cochin eggs is rocking already and its just went on lockdown. Temp hasn't been too high the other day its was 101 but now its back to 100 and the humidity is where it should be.. Has this happened to anyone else??? I hope it doesn't hatch just yet. Anyone have early hatches??????
    Maybe its because it can hear my chicks that I have in the brooder now?????

    I actually had that happen my last chick hatch of this year. Worried the pants off of me, but it ended up fine. The peeping, rock and roller DID hatch early, but was fully developed and fine!
    Good luck!

    I know what you mean, I ask myself EVERY time, WHY do I torture myself this way? Then I realize, at the end of the torture await fuzzy butts. [​IMG]
