    I set my gqf sportsman to 100 degrees and put 410 eggs to set.Sixteen days later they went into lockdown minus eight eggs.Those eight eggs were left in the racks and thrown on a table in my shop.Fast forward three days I take the racks off the table and throw them in the yard to be washed and sanitized.A few minutes later I hear a click chirping in the yard I step outside and see a wet chick looking at me like I am crazy.[​IMG]
