    Hey everyone I have about 20 something eggs in my incubator and I had one hatch last night. He hatched a about 2 days early and I woke up this morning to find that he had rolled and scattered the eggs all over the incubator. Will the eggs be ok?

    They'll be alright. With that many eggs and soon to be babies, eggs are going to get jostled around. Good luck with your hatch!

    I agree, they should be fine.

    if you get a lot of babies and bits of egg shell everywhere you may want to do a quick 'snatch' of the babies for the brooder and 'sweep' for the egg shells.

    Good luck,
