    Just purchased a sportsman 1502 w/ electronic controls. I incubated 120 eggs (quail) my first time but only hatched 40 of those (not candled nor weighed). So 50/50 chance of fertility.

    But was happy with the hatch but was wondering if anyone has noticed the sportsmans run cool or warmer than what the read outs say or not reliable and need to add another thermometer for second opinion..

    Also will be looking for new quail blood lines come spring...[​IMG]
