    I decided to make a wood tray to hold the eggs and turn them to each side 3 to 4 times a day do you guys think this is ok..

    Yes I am going to set something up to turn from the outside but I have to wait for this set of eggs to hatch [​IMG]

    Just like ours we made from the bottom of a plastic egg crate. Works pretty well when you tilt it from outside with the PVC pipe.

    I was going to do one like that but I was worried that the temp might be different when they are high or low. But hopefully not. But now I know that something like that won't fit in my bator, so I have to go to individual trays anyway. But I'm going to use the same idea. Nice work BTW
