It's possible that the oil may cause the embryos to die if it soaked though the shell. If you candle the eggs in a couple of days you will know for sure.

What kind of oil?....like motor oil?

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
