  1. Hi! That stands for Too Many Eggs!
    Just set another 60-something this evening and had to stand the new ones on end to get them to fit.
    The LG w/turner holds 48. The 2 others hold a boodle more.
    Who told birds to follow the calender? I'm setting/hatching chickens and ducks.
    Chickens - 21 days,
    Ducks - 28 days,
    Muscovy ducks 35 days.
    If I always set eggs on Thursdays, ALL breeds will hatch on Thursdays and can be in the hatcher together --- yaay.
    I just thought that was odd and convenient for me.

    but i guess you must like hatching at different times...???

    Quote:Yes, I cannot deal with staggered hatches.

    The way it started was with two of the MiniAdvance units, only hold 7 eggs. I couldn't get TOO crazy with those, right? Then I got an Octagon20 Advance EX. And then.........
