    The type of thermometer you use doesn't matter. Even if someone else used this kind, doesn't mean yours is accurate. Most thermometers aren't made to be super accurate. You won't know if yours is until you calibrate it. Even super accurate thermometers should be checked, over time they can loose the accuracy. If your going to spend all that energy, time & money on incubating eggs, the priority should be on KNOWING that your thermometer/hydrometers are accurate.
    Also, in a lot of incubators there are hot & cool spots, even in some forced air units. Your thermometers should be set as close to the eggs as possible.

    I understand all that. Was just looking for yes or no answer really. Maybe find some pros and cons about it.
