    I had to buy quail racks for my turner because the buttons fall right thru the reg. trays lol.

    Yes I also had to buy quail egg racks. And they are worth it! You can do so many more eggs and they all fit nice and snug.

    I just hatched out 28 out of 36 eggs and I turned them by hand. You just lay your had over a bunch of them and roll, I dont pay any attention on how far they have turned, I am sure a few rolled a couple times that got away from me. In all reality unless you are going to sell a TON of them you wont need to hatch more then 40 or 50. They grow so fast. It really isnt that hard turning them by hand. Jenn
