    There are 3 trays measuring 11 1/2" by 12 1/2" that fit 60 small eggs each. They are stackable , as I have shown in the photo.
    Shipping is included in price.
    I have never used these and hate to let them go to waste. They do fit in my Sportsman as well as my Genesis 1588.

    Nadine...are they small enough to the little bantam eggs? Explain the use with the 1588...would hand turning be required? I have silkies, d'uccles and OEGBs. My auto turner trays are a bit large for the little eggs to fit into.

    Yes, they are perfect for little bantam eggs. Since I set bantam eggs along with my standard size eggs I just use my big trays and have never used these trays. The big egg trays are difficult to get the small eggs out of but the small egg trays would definitely not fit my standards in them.
    With the 1588 I would use a small rolled up wash cloth, empty toilet tissue roll and/or sponge under an edge to tip the tray from side to side morning and night.

    they are great for bantam eggs, but don't stack them in the sportsman they don't fit that way.

    I am not sure what type of 'bator they would stack in but neither of mine are able to have stacked trays. I stack them when I store them but that is all.

    the other thing those trays are good for is putting a chick waterer on it with the points down, keeps the shavings out of the water, but sits low enough that the chicks can get on it, easy to clean to.
