    they look great but im not sure i would set the craked one tho most likely it will not do anything but go bad and could contaminate your baiter and other eggs.

    OK- I guess I might need to get one of those too now. You guys are really messin with my budget...lol. Luckily this is only a dollar purchase though. But, geez, 2 bators, one turner, 2 therm/hygrom, upteen packages of sponges, and sebbie eggs- there goes my tax refund.
