    I'm positive I'll be setting. I can't seem to stop! Especially now I think I have figured out my bad hatch reasons!

    Here's the cut down turner. I hatched with only it last time. This time I've added the two cut off trays on the right by drilling holes in the coolerbator walls so they swing independently. I'm hoping to add baling wire through the lid and use it to do a manual turning a few times a day. Will work out the details of that tomorrow. Still lost two eggs per tray due to width of the coolerbator but gained ten more spots. 38 egg spaces now.
