    You could put a few hair ties in there and sit the eggs inside the hair tie to keep them from rolling around. The thicker ones would work better then the thinner ones. I would guess that most women have a few hanging around the house. Is there a way to bend the wire bottom a little to straighten it out?

    Try using some of the plastic mesh that they sell for stopping things rolling of trays. It's kind of grippy and works a treat - stops the crunch of eggshell on wire as well!! [​IMG]
