    Is there even such a thing as a cheap but good thermometer. I need a good thermometer for my next batch of eggs. Last batch too 23 days so I must of been cool. I did ice calibrate the thermometer that came with the hovabaitor. Also tried a couple of glass tank thermometers from Walmart. I need to order a truly accurate thermometer tonight. I hope to find one from Amazon Prime so I can get it quick.

    Sorry, I know this topic has had to of come up several times. I am in a hurry and need good advice ASAP.

    Thanks in advance, Tom

    I use 2 Acurite hygrometer/thermometer in my incubator on either side. I paid $20 each at the TSC but they are on Amazon for cheaper. They are within 5% or so humidity and 2F of each other, pretty accurate. (Humidity is not as important as temperature in my mind, which is why +/- 5% doesn't bother me)[​IMG]
