Stacking eggs in a brinsea 20 advance? - Page 2

post #11 of 19

@bauerdog  Did you ever try this?  I'm considering giving it a try and was wondering how it worked for you.  Seemed to work for QueenMisha. :)

I just set a batch for the Easter HAL on Thursday. I was able to get 31 eggs in the basket without the rails. The last 2 eggs are horizontal along either side. The one egg sits perfectly solid, the other one shifts a bit. I was worried that my autoturner wouldn't be able to handle the extra weight, but so far so good. I will do a candle tonight to check on things and move the eggs around.

If they are a little tight I would take one out so they are able to move more easily

They aren't tight, they fit fine. The one egg just shifts a bit with the autoturner is at its steepest angle.

Thank you. I will update on a few days. I know I could get more in there, but worried about frying the autoturner mostly.

Thanks bauerdog, especially for posting the picture.  I have 28 in the tray, with one rail down the middle, set this morning.  Tuesday I'm picking up 6 eggs to incubate for a friend.  

Thought I'd pull out my least valuable homegrown eggs and stack 6 on the top for the first week until I pull the clears on day 7.  18 in there are shipped eggs, so I'm sure the most damaged ones won't make it.  

Guess it won't hurt to try, and worst case I pull out some of my eggs.

I figured the same, it won't hurt to try. I also put the less valuable eggs on top. 😁
