    Some are using rubber no slip shelf mats.

    That's what I"m planning to use. If I can remember.. I got so excited about lock down last time I forgot. lol...

    I also have seen someone made little cups out of paper towels or something like that.


    I also use the mat in the brooder for the first few days.
    And it's machine washable. I got mine at Wal Mart in the contact paper area.

    I use the non-slip kitchen stuff, works great, you can pick it up at Walmart for a few dollars.

    X3 on the self liner.. It works great. I've also use the lid of a egg carton and hatched them in there and all the shell and stuff stayed in there. Be careful using paper towels are anything type of light weight paper. Someone mentioned on the forum that they used it and a piece of it got sucked up in the fan.

    i dont want to use paper towels heard to many bad stories about it such as drying out the membrains for those who sat the eggs on the paper towels ect. mines a still air incubator. for humidity i heard useing a jar with a sponge works well
