    I just bought a new incubator and it came with 2 different thermostats. One is the digital with the unit itself and the other you just set on the eggs. I get 2 different readings. I need to know which one is right.

    You have to check your thermometer for accuracy using crushed ice..
    Check out the calibrating thermometer threads on here..in help section. . Simple search on here it should come up..

    It's the only way to find out..
