    I was woundering if the Jumbo Coturnix quail eggs would be ok in the Little Giant 6200 universal egg turner cups or if I would have to buy the quail cups

    I think that is the turner I have, and the eggs fit in the smaller center prongs. [​IMG] I usually use the paper-fiber cartons for quail eggs in my homemade turner, but sometimes they're larger than that.

    Hi I just put my jumbo corturnix eggs in the hatcher- I had some in the universal cups. All but two fit in there fine. Two were not big enough and slipped right through the hole in the bottom of the cup.
