    Well since I had to order a new wafer for my old incubator I decided to go ahead and try one of these out :) . I was wondering who uses them and do you like them ? Will it read lower than my others since it's the inside the egg temp ? I did an ice water calibration on it and it's seems to be right on temp wise.
    Thanks :)

    I would love to hear the answer to this. I'm in the "planning stage" of building a homemade bator and I'm seriously thinking about purchasing one of these.

    Anyone?

    gnvawms Mine's working well so far seems to stay the same temp or sometimes a degree higher than my egg level probe one . I'm thinking of dding a second for one for my other incubator :)

    gnvawms I think it's worth the shot I really like how it shows that the egg doesn't cool off as fast as the air temp :)
    Bakerentllc I've got that one in with this one I like them both :)

    I don't like how it takes a slot for egg!
