We are building a homemade incubator and have about 6 thermometers in it as we try to test the temperature. All six have different readings!!

The two simple ones purchased at TSC specifically for incubating are 6 degrees apart when sitting side be side.

Actually, I didn't think the altitude made them different. I just wondered if it is something to be concerned about once I get them right. Thanks for the site. I'll check it out!!
