    Hello All!

    I purchased a Sportsman 1502 incubator for turkey and goose eggs.
    It came with "WET BULB" for humidity...
    but no little "cloth thingie" to to stick on the stem of the original thermometer came with it.
    So...I've put in an Electronic thermostat and humidity sensor device.
    The "sensor" goes inside the incubator
    and the "readout" hangs on the outside.
    I am not how to correctly convert the % of humidity
    The humidity reading with the Electronic device fluctuates between 25% to 30 %.
    The thermostat fluctuates between 98 and 100 F.
    Is this OK??

    THANKS!

    Julie

    Most of the electronic with sensor units only read temperature from the sensor. So you will have to check that out and may need to put the whole unit in the incubator.
