    Hi all,just searching method for automatic turning for my laborotory incubator,20 years old,but in very good shape,it is made from aluminium,but only problem is that there isnt automatic turning...would like to use egg cups
    [​IMG] for quails and [​IMG] for chicken od duck eggs,but volume is about 200litters in incbator so at least 500 chickens and 1500 quails eggs can be in incubator(not at same time)..only things that egg cups are expencive 59 quail cups 16$(~500$ for 1770 eggs) and like that for chickens...i have trays like this [​IMG] but cups are better because turning,they are on one high,only rotate left or right(less space i need to turning eggs),so is there any cheaper option for cups?
    does anyone know where can i buy incubator trays for chicks and pheasant eggs with more than 40eggs per tray for chicks,and more than 56 eggs for pheasants?

    Thanks,
    Velimir

    The little giant can use some quail egg cups that drop into where the chicken eggs would sit...

    that way instead of using cups... i use the entire rack and get 20 eggs/rack instead of 14...
