    I am wanting to get some more eggs to hatch, but I already have 2 dozen in my bator. I have the genesis and the egg turner has 42 slots. So what do you do when you have more eggs than space?????

    my last big hatch i had to many eggs i think i had 20 extra eggs and no more turner cups so i did a no no well most BYC's would say not to do this but i had no choice!

    so i figure out a way to place the extra eggs on the turner so that they are getting turn with the rest of the eggs and i must have did something right because they hatch [​IMG]

    Take out the turner, you can get alot more in there without the turner.

    I agree, take out the turner and hand turn, this way you can put up to 60 chicken eggs in it. I did it [​IMG]

    You can take out the turner and just manually turn them till you candle and can take out the bad ones to make room. Your humidity isn't as important during your first week anyway....Good Luck and keep us posted [​IMG]
