    Set your eggs inbetween the rails and pack them at one end if they don't make a full row. Mine came with foam inserts for the rails but I don't always use them but do pack eggs at the end of rows with them. You could use other cut up foam or sponges to do this.

    Brinsea sell the foam inserts and extra rails as an extra part ~
