    would cutting a smaller hole in a rugular egg carton would work? and do quail eggs need to be turned 360 or just from side to side?

    I have been hand turning mine I put an X on one side and flip it 180* I finally shot the lock off my wallet and bought an auto turner with the quail rails if you are building one it would probably be easier to just buy a few quail egg flats and try to use them I bought the quail rails from my locAL FARM CO OP and they were about $14
