    I am doing 27 eggs for the hatch-a-long. I have 6 from my sister, along with my own and some purchased. Is there an easy way to keep the eggs separate from each other so that when they hatch, I know which chick is from which egg?

    Any ideas appreciated!

    Thanks

    Some people use little baskets, or put them inside of those little mesh laundry bags. Last time I did not have a full incubator so I just made walls out of damp washcloths lol. It would be hard to do that with 27 though.

    I made a divider out of hardwire cloth.
