    I'm looking at egg turners for my bator project
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=133431

    Nobody lists the dimensions of the assembly though. Anyone have a tape measure handy??

    Also, what gap do I need to keep between my hatching tray and the heating element? I guess my concern is the gap between the element and the eggs??

    I thought you were giving that to me.

    Hang on, I'll go measure ......... taps foot .......

    16" x 16" will clear all sides

    Just keep the element where the chicks can't reach it, and in the air-flow

    Quote:The one I have is bigger than that. 15 x 15 will not clear. The motor hangs off, and the arm needs room to move.

    Thanks!!!

    So as long as the air is circulating, the egg distance to the element is no big deal. Just make sure the chicks can't touch the element after hatch??
