    that is Styrofoam and i did cut the bottoms out I was told my many to use Styrofoam the rezone you should not use cardboard is because when they are hatching the cardboard will pull moisture from the egg causing the egg to dry out to fast.

    why was it a disaster? this will be my first hatch and was told since i incubated them on there end it would be best to hatch them on end
