    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what to use in place of the metal dividers on these incubators? I know you can use cut egg cartons, but that limits you to exactly 24 eggs. Sometimes I can fit more than 6 per row. Ideas?

    Maybe some strong cardboard?
    I have the same incubator and always use the metal bars
    I think you should stick to them
    Goodluck

    I agree on sticking with the metal bars. If yours are lost or you don't have them, Brinsea sells replacements, I believe.

    I've gotten new ones before... don't you find they're somewhat twisted? I think they could fit better than they do.

    Mine haven't been, they seem to go straight across, I wonder if you got some malformed ones? Might be worth asking Brinsea about.
