    Ok, thank you!!!
    I probably won't be able to get one of those in time (I already ordered eggs [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]). But I will see what I can find, just to double check it.

    I have a brinsea and i love how accurate and steady it is! I agree to never trust any single thermometer, u should always test them. I have an accurate reptile probe therm that i tested then used. Was about 10$ at a pet store. Good luck!

    oh bummer! you would think as much as they cost (even the styros are expensive for what they are) they should all be calibrated! This is why most people have bad hatches first time around, been there done it! Had no idea about calibration!

    They are so easy, trust me and you have all of us to give a hand when you need answers! I have links in my signature on both our cabinet cooler and reg coolerbator, explains the thermostats etc too! [​IMG]

    I'll be setting five breeds of chicken, quail, and possibly Muscovy. Depends on space.
