    I dropped 1 tray in mine and use it to hatch in so if there are eggs of different dates in there I can continue to turn the 2 top trays and put the due dated ones in the non turning tray .

    Thanks deerman,
    We are picking it up today.

    Can the old thermostat be replaced with the new version?
