I have incubated eggs before but one of the BIG hassles is turning the eggs four times a day. So I decided to splurge and get an automatic egg turner for my ‘bator. Since they are sort of standing up, I can fit a lot more in now too–normally 2 dozen, now 41!
All the brown eggs are from my White Orpingtons. In the lower right are green/blue eggs that are from Aracuanas belonging to my friend, Sue.
I am also hoping that the turner will improve hatch rates. I almost always got 50% hatch rate exactly every time. We’ll see if this improves it.
So I will report back after 21 days of 101 degrees!
