    I might buy a 1502 sportsman incubator and was wondering what size egg trays to get???
    I found this picture of and thought the pheasant egg looked about the same size as guinea eggs.? What do you think?

    When I bought guinea eggs from someone they fit right in the chicken egg trays with no problem.

    Of course I won't be useing that incubator/turner anymore since I have my R-Com 20, I'll only use my LG/Turner whenever I have surplus eggs or I need to use it for some reason.

    I don't know what the style/design of the egg trays look like for the Sportsmans, but the Ring Neck Pheasant eggs I hatched last spring were much smaller than Guinea eggs. Maybe you could contact GQF and ask them what size you need.

    The guy that I might be buying the incubator from said he has 9 egg trays. I asked him what size they were and he said, "The trays are chicken egg trays that measure 11 & 3/4" x12"."
    So do you think that would work?
