      That Im not sure how to answer.  WISH we could ask him in person ;-)
      Wild guesses on my part could include:
      Perhaps because you preserve (keep them safe) the birds alive in the shell.
      Perhaps eynmachen was a variation of rein-machen. da-rein machen  to put thereto or there-in (like you put the comfits into sugar...)
      curious but not a linguist of Thoma's talents

      Yes, I think it is a subtlety. But why use the word "eyngemacht" ?
