    I have had my Eco 20 running for 24 hours, no eggs yet, the thermometer that came with it is reading about 101 it is at the top of the incubator. well above where the eggs would be. I have the hydrometer laying on the tray right now, that is reading just over 30% it has a thermometer with it but I don't know how accurate the thermometer is, that is reading about 95. Should I leave the temp alone, or would I turn it up?-Down? Get another thermometer? Eggs should be here tomrrow, and I would like to set them Thurs, so need to get this temp straightened out. Thanks for any help.

    I use the thermometer that came with the Brinsea ECO 20. They are accurate. But you might want to double check the temp. with another accurate thermometer. The Brinsea Spot Check thermometer is very accurate. I run the ECO 20 with the supplied thermometer on 99.5 degrees. [​IMG]
