    Yep! Take an egg carton and cut the top off and then cut the bottoms off to make a hole... Use a 2x4 or a few books under the bator to raise one side and then alternate sides 3-5 times a day... It's a little more work since it's not automatic BUT, you can fit more eggs that way.. The automatic turner for my hova bator can only fit 42.. With egg cartons, I was able to fit 64!!! I don't plan on buying a turner for it! LOL
