    If so, do you have a recommendation for a particular scale? I had beginners luck with my first incubation of shipped eggs, even after the Post Office all but destroyed the box containing the eggs.

    I'd like to weigh the next eggs during incubation to help determine if I have the humidity correct, but would like to benefit from your experience with scales. I'll probably be shopping on eBay.

    Thanks for your help!
