    I just purchased a sportsman incubator. now I need to get some racks for holding the eggs.
    what does everyone else use? can I make some? i hatch eggs from bantams to turkeys.
    if you bought, what was the cheapest source you found?

    I use egg flats like most use to gather and ship eggs in.. works good as long as you put them in before hand. You have to let them absorb water so ou can hold the humidity up with them.

    Quote:for those that bought on ebay, what's the cheapest price. I saw some for $4.00 for a "chick master" would these work? or will the eggs fall out when it turns them?
