    Just a message 2 anyone else who is broke and hatching eggs. My mom found me some of the rubbery non slip shelf liner to put in the bottom of your incubator at the Dollar Tree. They had rolls of 12 inch long or 2 placemats made out of it. I got lavender placemats. Almost the perfect precut size for my LG.

    That's what I put in the bottom of my bator since that wire rack thing wants to keep curling up in 2 corners and I didn't want the little chickies falling in under that thing so this helps keep those corners down because I cut it a couple of inches bigger on all sides and folded it under and taped the corners so it stays down better.

    I use it a lot, too. I put it in at day 18, since I use an auto-turner in the Elderoo Super Bator until then.
    I tend to use white, though, to give that sterile, lab-like feel. [​IMG]

    Hi,
    Does it affect humidity any?
    If the water is covered?
    Thanks!
