    Today was suppose to be the start of lockdown and now I have about 6 chicks pipping.I hadn't even had them off the turner yet and heard them chirping. Wonder if it had anything to do with the temp spike yesterday?It went to 107 for a few minutes luckily I was home when it happened.Hoping they are going to be ok...

    they should be fine I usually move them when I hear the first chirp...Sound like your thermometer may be off an you are running a little high... A short spike wouldnt to it.
