If you use a Genesis 1588 HovaBator, do you find the temperature and humidity shown on the machine to be accurate? The one I'm using shows a HUGE difference from my hygrometer/thermometer. The temperature is also 2-3 degrees cooler on the floor of the incubator than it is at the top of the incubator where the fan is. Which reading do I go with? It seems like the incubator uses the temperature at the top of the unit.
Been using 2 low-quality incubators, and having all kinds of trouble keeping temp. and humidity constant. The Hova-Bator seems to keep the humidity the most constant, so I'm planning to use it for lockdown...But now I don't know if the temperature is correct! Been erring on the side of keeping it lower so I don't cook the chicks, but OMG...Now I'm so frustrated I want to cry and have only 4 possible viable eggs out of 3 dozen!!! Granted they are shipped eggs, but I'm scared it's gonna be a big fat ZERO hatch. :(
Do I use the temperature reading on my hygrometer that is sitting on the floor of the machine where the eggs are, or go with the reading I get if I put the hygrometer up where the fan is?
