    Only thing green in that pic is the counter... lighting just wasn't good when I took that pic. I do have some green eggs that I set on Friday, though [​IMG]

    You can soon--after the submission deadline for the eggs set contest--Dec. 16th because quail eggs are being set today.

    To all members, if you have not sent me a pm with your set numbers please do so.

    I am missing a lot of eggs!

    The first year, turkeys hatched the previous Spring usually start laying late Jan, February for me and then in their second year, they start laying later, maybe April, I can't remember.

    No Quail Rails so this is what I came up with...
    Cut end of water bottles with the caps removed, the 16.9 size.
    The bottles were staying in there the past couple days fine no problem turning, Until the eggs were added today.
    I hope it works out. It's a GQF Hova Bator 2362N, manual wafer forced air.
    I'm hoping the forced air helps because the eggs sit a little higher....
    What i deemed as the more desirable ones I set in the leftover rail spaces.

    [​IMG]

    It does seem to be holding ok...
    NO, this is not the only thermo in the unit
    I also have another manual (bulb type) AccuRite thermo in there too.
    And in the empty space next to the turner another AccuRite Digital Thermo/Hygro with 24 HR High/Low.
