    I have about 20 Barred Rock eggs due next Thursday. And my question is what can I do to safely lock down that many eggs. This is my concern. I hatched off some silkies 2 weeks ago and had one to die I think bc the eggs got flipped. It was broke thru and everything but the egg was turned over. So I think one of the ones that hatched bumped into it and turned it. So with 20 eggs on I'm sure eggs will get bumped into and I don't wanna find anymore half hatched one if possible.

    You could try the egg carton method.. Standing them (big end up) in egg cartons for lockdown and let them hatch that way.
