    Anyone have advice on how to make an auto egg turner? I would like to make a bator out of my fridge and make it good quality. And not have to turn the eggs by hand. So any advice is welcome. I want to have it set to turn its self evry few hours. Thanks.

    Check earlier post in the archives...under making incubators....I'd give the thread but don't know how to do it. There are many ways...using a egg carton, pvc pipe....they do however need to be moved 45 degrees rest and moved to the opposite 45....very important the first 7 days....There are many post old and new....this problem is being worked on by at least 2 dozen people here....just keep searching and reading.....Wlecome [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Jay1995

    I wonder...if you could convert into a homemade bator like a foos ball game (If I spelled that right) and turn the eggs from the outside like a roaster but not all around just side to side? IDK just my mind thinking..LOL

    Pivoting trays a power antana an a light timer. I just use foam bator turners in my fridge incubator but I have thought it threw.
