    Quote:I am talking about the r-com 20 pro, but i think they all have the trays i am wondering about.
    The chicken trays seem too big, and the quail seem too small.

    I just got the mini 3 egg bator and the optional 7 quail egg tray. The banty eggs would have to be very small to fit in the quail tray without crowding and rubbing. The tray is about 7 x 4 inches and there are 7 staggered depressions in that space, each about as big as a big man*s thumb print. Not much room at all.

    I agree......and i decided to use the regular chicken egg tray. Its working ok as all 4 eggs are developing [​IMG] But i think someday i will buy the universal egg tray [​IMG]
