Brain fart Q. 1502 Hatch tray, how many eggs?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

How many eggs on average does the bottom hatching tray hold in the GQF sportsman 1502?? Going to order one in the future and im not too sure if i should order another hatch tray with it or not. Might even want to order two so i can hatch on all three levels. Thanks for any help.

I would assume it could hold the contents of 1 1/2 or two of them.  I have the Dickey which is similar.  I wouldn't want to do more than that.

  I used hardware cloth to make a cover for mine incubator trays.  I would just put cardboard or some other solid in there to keep the refuse from dropping down.
