    I usually just lay all of the eggs on the wire but they end up getting rolled around alot. So, i'm thinking about using egg cartons next time during lockdown, but i want some feedback on how to do that and how well it works. Thanks! [​IMG]

    I want to start this by saying I know nothing, I will be putting my first batch in the bator later this week. But I did read, that if you are going to use egg cartons its best to use the plastic ones not the cardboard ones because with the increased humidity in lockdown the cardboard will turn to mush and not solve the issue. Hopefully someone w/ experience will answer your question shortly.
