Is there something I can use to for lockdown other than my bator?

    Hey! I have gone a little egg-buying crazy and realize that I have too many eggs for my two King Suro incubators. I think I'm fine for the incubation period but not lockdown. Is there something less expensive that I can use for lockdown? Thanks!

    I don't know how big your bators are (I am so new at this, as you can see) but I had the same problem with my Brinsea eco 20, so I bought a cheap bator (an LG - would have bought a Hovabator if I had know they were so much better) I used this for my hatcher and it worked pretty well. Don't know if this helps any (prob not since I am such a newbie [​IMG] )
