    Silly question? My instruction sheet doesn't tell me. I've ordered hatching eggs and have no idea how many is the max for that bator. I've only used it once and only had like 14 eggs in there for my trial. I have 36 eggs coming. BO, frizzles and millies. Should I stop there or will there be room for more?

    What if I use egg cartons? do I need to leave space between them for circulation?

    Quote:Then you would possibly be able to fit more, but then you would have to turn them by hand 3 times a day.. I don't know that that would be worth it in case you were to forget.

    I thought if I used egg cartons, I had to tilt the whole carton one way and then the other way. ??

    I suppose that would work, but I hear that automatic egg turners are the way to go.
