    I have an incubator that holds 7 eggs the stand up in the incubator and it does not have a tilter in it so do I spin the eggs flip the eggs or what I can not lay them down. You can see a image on ebay it is a small round $26 incubator

    Can you tilt the eggs at a 45 degree angle?

    It says egg turner but I see what you're talking about. Is there anyway to tilt the white tray that holds the eggs? It says it come with a user guide. Did it say anything in there about how the turner works? What's that black stick looking thing that sticks up?

    I have seen a similar incubator in use on YouTube. Magic Fly brand. No holder. Eggs are turned manually. Great hatching success. I'd remove the holder and place paper towel or perforated shelf liner to protect eggs and incubator. My only experience is YouTube, but worth a try IMHO. Check out Appalachia's Homestead for incubation video I spoke of. Blessings.

    No the instructions are like 5 sentences you can't tilt them n even if I took the tray out I couldn't lay all the eggs down in there because I've got 7 days and this is day 2
