    how did you make your egg turners? Those are COOL! Plus you fit another row!

    Thanks..addict...I was at TSC and looking at their auto turners....they are rather pricey and we have two bators to set...so i got to thinking...why couldnt i make something like this...i took 2x1 and cut long enough to fit in bator...then cut dowel rods to fit the width...then took easter eggs and split them in half...the top part works great for full size eggs...and the bottoms we used for the bantam eggs....then screwed them onto the dowels...and attached them to the 2x1 with pipe hangers for plumbing....all we have to do is open the lid of the bator and turn them row by row....and it only takes a few seconds...right now...all of those eggs in that picture have chickies in them...plus we have another bator set with full size eggs in it...[​IMG]

    that is a great idea! my bantam eggs are too small for my trays in my sportsmen, and they fall threw the holes. and I have been trying to figure out, what I could do, there are too big to fit in the quail turners.

    SO now I know thanks so much !!!!!!!!!!!!!
