I am wondering if I could fit 24 largish bantam eggs in my RCom 20.
Normally I use the 20 egg frame but I have the opportunity to get 24.
Would they still turn OK?

If you have a tray for small eggs you could use that and get them in easily. OF if you have dividers you could do it. If you squeeze them in on the 20 tray , no they wont all turn. I have put extras in mine at times and once a day given them all a turn so that the onces that are not turning are getting some movement. I also moved them around in the tray so the non movers got some time in a slot that turned.

If you mean the 20 egg frame with 20 holes in it then it will fit 20 eggs (bantam or large size) only.

If you mean the frame with the horizontal bars then it may fit more than 20. It'd be worth getting 24 eggs anyway as that means you can use the best 20 (in case any appear to have any imperfections).

Yes, I will get the 24.
I used to use the dividers but found the eggs didn't turn so well so I bought the 20 hole thingy.
I like it best but if I can fit 24 eggs in this time it will be good.
Hand turning a few times a day is OK.
You know, even with the 20 frame they really don't turn a great deal so I guess it won't be that different.
