    Well It came off the turner today! I am not getting my hopes up to high after I found out for the past few days my hygrometer is busted. Now I am just winging the humidity but it says 101.3 for the temp. I dont know if this is correct or not. I am going for the more exspensive hygrometers next hatch. I will let yall know on the 20th if I see rocking

    Well I am using the $20 hygrometer for shooting practice. I took out the battery and it put it back in. Temp is reading 106.04F.

    I'm not sure I would trust it's reading at this point. It sounds like your having trouble with it. Hopefully it is wrong and it's not that hot in there! Good luck!

    I know its wrong. it was 100.00-102.03-106.04F. So I am just leaving the bator alone and trust my instincts.

    Should I see what happens or just unplug it and start new?

    Unplug the bator? No way! Just hang tight and see what you get. If by chance that thermometer is a Fluker's, you definitely can't trust it. They used to be reliable, but somehow, quite a few wild ones got out onto the shelves, and are awful for jumping all over the place. I had one and exchanged it and the new one seems to work okay.
