    so my friend farmer brought me a surprise this morning.......gave me 150 eggs of mixed breeds of his farm.....got all excited and turned on my fridgebator who was resting after it's last crazy hatch...[​IMG].....anyways, i planning on setting some shelves for incubating this coming weekend but got all excited with all them eggs so i went ahead and laid my fridgebator on its back and set all 5 cartons and instead of manually turning each egg, i'm gonna turn the full cartons like i did on my last hatch.....hopefully everything goes well.....here some pics.....[​IMG]

    I set 230 eggs on the same day as you. They are barred rock X production red (black sexlink) eggs. I also have a home made incubator that I made out of a broken freezer. I just got some trays so I can tilt the eggs (kind of like you are doing) that are also stackable. It was really hard hand turning all those eggs, and at times have been hand turning around 400 eggs 3 times a day.

    400 eggs 3 times a day Ugh. Sounds like a full time job almost.
