    i hatched some guineas in november in my homemade bator. 5 out of 12 hatched. i learned alot. mainly, leave the bator alone while the eggs are hatching!!! i used an egg carton to put the eggs in and turn the carton. saved alot of work by not turning individually. what can i use as a "carton" with the goose eggs? i am assuming that they won't fit into a standard egg carton. any other advise is welcome too.

    thanks,
    monty
