I was wondering how many chicken eggs fit in the bator without a turner?
depends on the incubator.
depends on the size of the eggs too!
I agree with everyone it depends. I have a homemade incubator. It will hold 28 standard size eggs and will be wall to wall eggs. I hand turn. Then after I have culled out a few duds along the way I always have enough room to hatch. It always works out.
The turners for the styrofoam incubators (LG) will hold 41 chicken eggs (42 if you put one by the turnere motor).
i have a LG and a hova bator.. they are rir eggs... does that help?
Quote:Those turners should hold 41 eggs (6 rails with 7 cups per rail). The newer ones come with a small cover to cover the egg cup right next to the motor because of possible issues with the egg hitting the motor when it rotates toward it.
I will be hand turning them!! I wont have a turner in there so i figured i might be able to fit a few more in there! is that an option?
Folks sometimes make dividers out of sheet metal / flashing and stack them check with member JJMarnes on the quail board
Quote:My auto turner for the LG holds 48 chicken eggs? just counted...maybe mine is a different model?
