I am praying to egg gods that this works the way I hope. I have had chicks before but never pulled the eggs from the birds before to hatch. I picked up a sportsman due to the amount of eggs it will hold at a time. I only set 27 to try and see how I do with it. I got my temp at 100 on the dot and isn't moving up or down. One of my friends that hatches all the time is keeping tabs on me so I don't have any trouble at least I hope that is why he is doing it. My set consists of lavender Orpingtons, black copper, buff polish, lemon Orpingtons, light Brahma, and red stars. Wish me luck.
