    So I am handturning turkey eggs now and while I liked checking the temps every 4-6 hours and then turning the eggs, I am ready for a turner to free up my time and save my hands from excessive hand washing! LOL

    Apparently the LG is not suitable for turkey eggs as it puts the eggs too close to the heater coil; possibly just load the middle area with just a few.


    What brand and model do you use with a turner for the large turkey eggs (BR)??

    Brower's Top Hatch will work on all sizes of eggs. Consists of tub with pie shaped rack that holds approx. 6 turkey eggs in ea. section. The tub sits on base with turner. It is noisy, but gets the job done.
