Im in the process of building a homemade incubator for the hopefully soon to come Chukar eggs. I was wondering for the shelves in it, would you recommend setting eggs directly on 1/2"X1/2" hardware cloth shelves, setting the eggs in standard size chicken egg cartons on the 1/2"X1/2" hardware cloth shelves, or use a screen like that would be on a screen porch wrapped tight around a wood frame for shelves? Im assuming the 1/2"X1/2" is going to be large for the chicks feet if the make it out the shell or carton before I see them, but unsure as this is my first season. Also, is there any benefit to storing eggs (fertility wise) before putting them in the incubators, or just put them straight in there as you get them? My only concern is what will happen when I get to the lock-down part of the incubation. Thanks in advance for any input as it will all be appreciated.
