    I love this thermometer that has a remote alarm. I can set the alarm by my bed and if the temp in the bator goes either up or down too much during the night, the alarm goes off and I can get up and fix it!!!

    I know...that is a down side. However, if you are purchasing eggs, it might end up saving you money with a better hatch!!

    Certified thermometers are the way to go! But yes, they are costly.

    What a find! [​IMG]

    I have been giving hatching eggs alot of thought but due to all the problems I've read about with loss of whole batches it made me worried. I can see the appeal to this themometer if it can help save from loosing so many in a batch. Seems like if it works the way it should you would make your money back with interest in healthy chicks.

    Keep those good finds coming it really helps.

    I swear, I've spent about $150 on eggs with shipping and I think this would pay for itself. I'm going to start a pggy bank for it.
