    Okay, I'm expecting a few egg shipments and the total amount of eggs will be a bit over the 42 limit of my egg turner.

    Is there any of you who may have a photo of your eggs "stacked" inside the 'bator when there's no more room?

    I'm sure I just put the extra eggs on top of the others, but I would like to see a visual if someone's got it.

    thx

    So when you do that, stack eggs like that, you don't have to hand turn the stacked eggs right? Thanks, Chris

    I'm thinkin' the auto turner will turn all the eggs, even the ones stacked on top.

    However, as was suggested, if there are too many eggs for the turner to handle, it won't turn.

    Now I gotta figure out how many would be "too many" if all of them were bantam sized. [​IMG]
