    it will absolutely work. just remember to take the bottoms off the cups for ventilation.

    I just got a used cabinet incubator also. I'm going to buy some plastic trays from Cutler Supply, they are about $1 - 4 each depending on the size eggs. The cartons will work but they can't be cleaned well, so you'll be replacing them a lot.
