    I have a Miss Prissy bator which I love. However it's only a little over 10 inches wide. I'm trying to find an egg turner that is less than 15 inches. Anyone know if they even make them??

    Certainly, I can do that. That's what I do now. But since I work, it would make it more convenient and probably better for the hatch if I had an automatic one.

    I doubt it. Youll have to make up one yourself. Affix a segmented egg tray of some sort on PVC tubing that passes through the bator wall. Use a larger PVC tube as a bushing. The eggs sit on this tray and you just tilt it either way.
    Thats all an auto turner does, anyway - it should be rightly called an auto-tilter! [​IMG]

    Get with speckledhen (Cyn) She did one this way.
