    I was just wondering how long you are to use the water wiggler.
    Especially once the chick becomes mostly a solid mass.

    I am at day 16 and just wondering if now I should just go with the air temp of the incubator as my guide

    Thanks

    The wiggler helps give you a more accurate reading, because you are looking at the temp of a mass (which remains at a more constant temp).

    I would use it throughout the entire incubation period
