    I've read on the forum that people rig up their own water wiggler using a ziplock.

    You can use a ziploc or just a cup of water to get the average T. You really don't need one to hatch. I've never used one. I've also not measured humidity either so.... it's up to you! I say get the air temp at egg level good, and pop them in, find that wiggler when you're at a mall or near a toy store, and get them babies cookin!.

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    Please don't stress over a water wiggler. It is not needed to incubate. Do like Diana said, get temp right at egg level and go with it.

    It took me about 15 min. of checking but did finally find one in the toy section of Walmart. If you need to ask one of the help where there section of $1.00 toys are, chances are if you ask them where the water wiggler is they won't know what you are talking about. LOL but all the $1.00 toys are in the same section. Actually you will only have to pay 88 cents.
