    Ok, so I need to swap out my chicken egg rails for my quail rails, but I can't seem to pop out the chicken rails, I'm afraid of breaking the turner if I pry too hard, Is there a secret to doing it?

    You have to remove the motor all together (two small screws below it) then you can turn the racks in a way that makes them slide right out.

    Here's what the instructions said.

    Washing the Automatic Egg Turner
    Disassembly:
    Place complete Automatic Egg Turner on
    a flat surface. Slide power cord horizontally
    to remove from notch in base.
    Loosen two screws connecting the motor
    to base and remove. Slide motor upward,
    releasing the white plastic lever from Tbracket
    of connecting rod.
    Turn connecting rod so offset arms rest in
    a horizontal position and egg trays are
    vertical. Lift offset arm to release connecting
    rod from notches.
    Lift individual egg trays by offset arms
    while still in a horizontal position from
    offset arm notch in base and pull slightly
    to release the pin from the corresponding
    hole in the base. Repeat with all six trays
    until you are left with an empty base.
    Place egg trays and base in dishwasher,
    run and dry.

    Good Luck!
