The new one is actually a little smaller in capacity but much better design. The turner is a lever on the outside. I will add a linear actuator to it but the box from the USA with it in it is not here yet.
I want to be able to handle 150 eggs a week.
I am going to mainly sell chicks at day old and 3 weeks.
That way I don't need the real estate to grow them out.
I also need to increase my breeders to 24 RIR 24 Buff Orps and 12 each of barred rocks, white rocks, BBS jerseys and Orps. The rest will be OK with just 8. I have enough breeder pens to cope. The two grow out pens will house replacements and odd balls.
