    The 42 that the turner holds. Haven't hatched yet.

    Why does the box for the hova-bator turner say it hold 41 eggs when it actually holds 42 eggs

    I wondered that too, about my LG, which holds the same amount. It said not to place an egg in the cup closest to the turner motor.

    But why? Maybe because it gets too hot??

    My directions don't say that?


    don't guess it makes any difference to me, the 120V fan I'm running should keep that from being an issue.

  7. Hi!
    Set 74 on 2/21. Had 5 clears, so I'm down to 69.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    We've got about 490 in right now. The turner motor gets really hot and you are not supposed to set an egg there.
