    On Monday I started picking up eggs that I am planning on sticking into the 'bator in 7-10 days.

    I've been putting them into the turner, but....I have this deep suspicion that it really isn't turning. Even when it turns it turns so slowly that I can't "see" it turning, and I was fooling myself that I just kept going back in when it was in the same position....(or sumthin')

    Anyway, I can hear the feel the motor vibration, but I suspect I've got something out of whack where the motor hooks to the yellow frame that rocks the eggs.

    Does anyone have a picture of that set-up so I can see what I may have wrong?

    Fret, fret, fret,......

    Yeah, I sorta know that's how it works.
    It worked like a charm through a bunch of hatches last year.

    What I just did was to make marks on it so I could see if it has moved in an hour or two....

    I just have the feeling it's groaning and not moving.....

    They are like clock hands. If you watch it won't move.

    So I took a magic marker and drew a line across the frame where each tray was located when I plugged it in.

    And now I can see that the lines have completely disappeared....

    Whoopeeeeeee !!!!
