    Hi y'all! So I want to try my hands at incubating goose eggs. I have a sportsman 1502 but can't seem to find any trays for them. I saw somewhere someone make some trays that supports the eggs with welded wire. Kinda like a basket secured to the tray and you just lay the eggs in the basket. They will fit snug. Now my question is, will I still need to turn them by hand or will the turner that's built into the incubator do the job? I've never incubated eggs that are laying on there sides.
    Thanks in advance!

    Hey, if the tray is automatic then yes it will turn itself. If not automatic turn at least 3 times a day
