How much room [floor space] does your egg truner take?

Discussion in 'Incubating & Hatching Eggs' started by valley ranch, Dec 14, 2010.

  1. The egg turner in your bator, how much room does it take?

    I thinking of building an incubator how much room shall I allow, if added later, for a auto egg turner?

    I enjoy the exploits I've read here about building, testing, hatching eggs. Thanks

    I made my inside of my incubator 16" x 18" so I could put a thermometer on the side of the turner and have room to move it forwards or backward if needed and if you are making 2 shelves it allows for the air to go past the eggs without blowing directly on the eggs
  3. Thanks for gettings back, with your answer and anothere thread I read, sounds like I'll need at least 16"X16". I appreciate you taking the time to post.
