    Is there a way to remove the Universal Egg Racks from this (<---Click) turner?

    Yeah, I'd like to know how to do it without disturbing the other racks. When I was playing with it in the begining, I'd remove a rack and the rest would fall out also. [​IMG]

    Mine just pop right out. Push it all the way in one direction that it will go and then pop it out on the curved neck side. Careful not to break the peg that holds it in. I just had to put one of mine back in when I cleaned it after my weekend hatch..

    Do you have this exact turner (the 1611 Hova-Bator one)?

    Mine had cotter pins holding in some of the racks, make sure you remove those before trying to take the rack out. [​IMG]

    You hatch your chicks out on the turner?

    I remove the turner on day 18, put down a few layers of cheese cloth & lay the eggs on their side, air sac end slightly elevated.​

    Thanks, but I just can't get it to work!! I tried and tried, then I was worried that I was letting the incubator get too cold, so I just put the rack back in (I had one side out, and half of the other). Why can I not get take out [​IMG]
