    OK, I have the genesis incubator with the universal egg racks and the quail egg racks.

    Will the universal racks work for turkey eggs or do I need to get a set of the goose egg racks.

    I know this is a stupid question, but I did warn you....

    The GQF website says that the universal trays hold eggs from partridge to ducks. Are turkey eggs bigger than ducks?

    Turkey eggs are not any bigger than a ex. large chicken egg. What will work for large eggs will work for turkeys. I have some that my turkey layed in the bator now.

    My universal racks held my turkey eggs fine, except for one giant one that would touch the sides. The rest all fit fine.
