That's essentially what I did in my GQF.  I made a cradle and ziptied it to one of the trays so that rotation was 45 degrees or so along the long axis in each direction.  Worked like a charm!  I turned 180 degrees at day 10 or so, but that was the only time.

Thanks much! That's exactly what I needed to know. And since you had a 100% hatch I'm thinking it works just fine, lol.

I got 6/6 Calls with GQF mod.  If I didn't have so dang many eggs I'd do that more often.

I'm enjoying the symmetry here. It'll be even better when I get more goose eggs in.

Anyone have any clue what color this little is? Appears to be a Cochin bantam.
