    My Mother in Law asked me to put a couple of Wood Duck eggs in my incubator for her next month, do I need to lay them on their side and hand turn them, or will they fit in the LG auto turner? If it matters I am using the LG turner in a hovabator 1588 incubator, and I believe the 1588 is deeper than the LG.

    Thanks!

    Thank you, I think I may try it, I just have to wait until my chickies are done at the end of march, so that I can raise the Humidity for ducklings.
