A friend's neighbor came up with this idea. It works well for those who leave the eggs in the turner or egg carton and fills up the extra spots so the chicks don't get caught in them. 1. Get an egg. 2. Poke a hole in one end. 3. Take stir the contents. 4. Empty the egg. 5. Rinse the egg out. I would also suggest cooking it to kill the bacteria. 6. Hold in a bowl of water until full. 7. Place in bator. Use as many as you need to get the humidity up and you can adjust the hole size to help with the humidity too!
