    I was wondering if a duck egg would fit in my little giant egg turner or if i would have to hand turn them? How much bigger are they than a chicken egg? [​IMG]

    Not sure about the turner, but the duck eggs I've seen have been a good size bigger than chicken eggs.

    They just fit in the LG turner. but it was a used one a new one you might have to keep pushing them down till they stretch some.
