    Does any one have or know where I can get fewer than six. I really do not want to have to buy six of them. I really want just one or two to hatch some of the eggs in the sportsman and not have to buy another bator just to do goose eggs


    thanks

    What I do for my Dicky incubator is take a tensioner rod for curtians, the kind with rubber tips and put them in the bator long ways to keep the eggs from rolling. I lay the eggs on their sides....

    I bought the set of six, but when I got them I wish I had just made them. I dodn't know what they looked likeas there was no pic of them on the on-line store. These can be easily made from quarter inch wire mesh. The sides are 2 1/2 inches and the bottom is 3/4 inch wide. The length is 24 inches. So a peice 5 3/4 inch wide by 24 inch long and then bend it to look like the picture and there you go ! Mine came with small bolts and nuts to attach to the mesh in the incubator trays.
