    I got 30 eggs in a styrofoam incubator, it's day 5.
    I accidently nudged it with my foot once or twice, the eggs just shook a bit, nothing fell or rolled out of place;
    Are they okay?

    They should be fine, unless you really nudged them hard. I ship and have received eggs from the postal service. They handle packages roughly, and i still hatch a few.

    Thank you.
    But, what do you mean by "Nudged hard", example?

    just bumping the bator should not effect the eggs too much. If you kicked it across the room, they may be harmed. most of your eggs should be fine.
