    i cut the tops and sides off the carton so it wouldn't mess up the temp in the bator and i figure if i have the eggs like this an when it came time to turn them just turn them facing the other side like turning on a light switch i think it's easyer don't you?

    I think its cute. I really liked hand turning. Except I didn't have your idea, and the eggs would roll, so I put little washers to hold them in place. Next time, it will be like yours.

    What I do is turn the carton upright and put something under 1 end as a wedge and fill the carton.
    to turn just remove the wedge from one end and put it under the other.

    It is a lot faster than turning the individual eggs. [​IMG]
