    You can always try to go without it, but personally I need all the help I can get!

    One of those you are going to need...it will be telling you your humidity...40 to 50% the first 18 days into your hatch and when you stop turning on day 18 you will be trying to keep your humidity between 60 to 70% range...

    And you will need to get another good thermometer besides the one that would come with your bator those don't keep good temp ranges...
