Egg Incubator Answered

I am planning to develop an egg incubator with my own design. I know that the egg should be turned twice or three times a day. My proposed design a rotating shaft with an egg holding fingers fixed into the rotating shaft to rigidly hold the eggs so, the eggs are not independently rotating rather moving upside down 360 degrees with the shaft. So, does this work and able to hatch my eggs??

With regards,

Only go about 60° either way, 90° either way from upright if you have to.
If you fully rotate the egg your hatching rate goes down badly.
Not enough movement and the embry can get stuck on the shell, too much and it won't fully develop.
Just use row dividers that you move sideways, or have them fixed and move the tray.
This way you can make sure the movement is just right ;)
