    I am getting ready to set up a batch of banty eggs and all I have are large egg cups and not sure if my local feed store will have any small ones in stock. Will these work if I have to use them? You see I will have to go out of town for three days and there will be noone home to turn them during that time so I kind of wanted to make sure that they were taken care of. My husband said that he could rig something up so that the would not slip around but I have never seen a banty egg so don't know if that will work. Anyone ever used large cups for this?

    you might be able to use them...if you can get some of the non skid rubber for shelf can get it at wal mart. Maybe line the cups with that? I dont know....I dont have an egg turner for you can figure this one out! Good luck!
