    I decided to use the egg carton method for the chicks to hatch on. I used styrafoam egg cartons, cut them nicely for air flow (as recommended) and glued them together. This holds 42 eggs, and they fit perfectly. I plan to use this with the Turbofan Incubator by Hovabator.

    I changed my mind, these will be used with the Hova genesis 1588. Sound good?

    I'm still reading up on incubating & was wondering about using egg cartons.
    You answered that question quite nicely--thanks!
