    How do you guys clean your sportsman or dickey? Mine had a couple chicks stink mine up pretty bad. It is full of eggs at the moment. Guess I can pull the trays and take it out side but don't know what to clean it with.

    I would probably use Chlorox wipes... but that's just me... then let it air out in the sunshine.

    I clean each tray before I re-fill them (The hatching tray too) with a scrub brush and hot water, then dip in a light bleach solution and air dry (In the sunshine if possible.)
