    Will Jumbo Coturnix eggs fit in the white egg cup on the little giant turner? The Universal or would I have to buy the quail? It's the 6200.

    Quote:You can use the regular one. Cut a kleenex into quarters, fold the quarters into quarters, put it in the bottom of the turner, put egg on top. Works fine for regular and button quail eggs.

    Absolutely. I have regular coturnix quail eggs and they fit just fine in the regular turner. In fact, look at this thread about it that I started:

    When I got my eggs, they fit in there perfectly, no need for a stopper in the bottom even. So I am more than willing to bet that jumbos will work even better! Good luck!

    Quote:yeah i agree, and esp on the jumbo eggs part! Atleast some of my jumbos lay some biggun eggies, so thered be no need for support in the turners. But for pharoah eggs i could deffialty see needing to possibly (for some) add something to keep the eggies from rocking too hard...either way i dont think they'd fling out or anything. [​IMG]

    Good luck with your future eggies! [​IMG]
