    Hi,

    I am very new to this, this will be my second time with an incubator, but have a question about small size bantam eggs. I know, they are all small, but I have 4 from a very small black mottled hen and the turner is to big to hold them, What can I use to cushion them so they stay upright?

    Thanks

    Lois

    try not to cover much of the shell, but a little paper ring or part of an egg carton cut off might work. I guess the "preferred" method would be to use the proper size egg tray, but that's not always an easy option.

    You can always just fashion your own, just try to leave most of the egg shell exposed to the air.



    ******btw, this is kinda just guessing, I have not had this issue*********
