I was wondering. button quail eggs are so small that they will not fit in a regular egg turner. can you just put two in each space?

I put two in my egg cups, they fit snug and worked well. My egg cups are the older ones tho that come the the little giant turner.

I just put my two batches in the new bator today. I made some little cups out of the foam egg carton cups. Cut them down, and slit it a bunch of times around so I could taper the size down and then taped it. I put a hole in the bottom so the air could still circulate. Then I did some with a piece of foam stuff that is very light and airy?? Just put a strip in each cup and put the egg in the middle. Never occurred to me to just put two eggs in each cup. Will try that next time. I set some seramas and they fit ok but the button quail are just too small.

I will try to post a pic later on.

Good luck.

I used cotton balls in the bottom of my turner so they would fit. I had 11 out of 13 hatch and one of those was clear.
