    ok.. I have hatched eggs for years with homemade incubators that my brother built for me.. but this is the first time using the Brinsea for turkeys..

    I have heard where you shouldn't use the auto turner and shouldnt have the eggs on their ends.. to only hatch them laying on their side and hand turn.. what I am looking for is people who have successfully hatched using this incubator.. what did you do and what would you do differently if you were going to try again?

    So.. has anyone used a Brinsea eco 20 for hatching turkey eggs?.. if you did.. did you stand them on their end and use the auto turner? How were your hatch rates? Also how many eggs did you manage to fit in there?

    thanks!
