    Went to the closest Petco and they did not have the thermometer I was looking at (see first post). So I bought a duo pack of petco's thermometer and humity gage thingy.

    I just started the incubator again and put the old thermometer & the new one is (as well as the humidity gage). Right now the thermometer is at 95 and the theremometer is at 30 (dessert). Hopefully when I check at 4 or 5 they will both be up.

    Edit: I checked on the temperature and humidity around 2:45pm...The incubator is filled in trough 1 and has only 1 plug in (like hatching conditions)
    The temperature read about 98 degrees and the humidity was only 24. How do I raise the humidity when I do have water in it? (will it go up if I add the turner?) I will recheck at 5pm
