    so the tv incubator is moving along. it is wired and mostly insulated.

    time for the egg turner. originally i planned on using the PVC turner i have seen here. now i have a different idea, wondering if it would work. put the eggs in an shallow Rubbermaid tub, three times a day put a wedge on one side, to shift the position of the eggs. i would drill holes in the tub to help with air flow. it will not guarantee a full 180 degree turn, but the eggs would shift/move at each turn.

    would that be enough egg movement?
