    Just set my eggs yesterday, Silkies and Americauna EE's.... this is my first time. Purchased an incubator from tractor supply.
    So far, temp is doing good. Where can I get a cheap humidity thermometor? Any suggstions I might use for this first run?

    You can find them at wal-mart for around $7. You can do a search online as to how to calibrate it to check its accuracy. I found mine over in the home section where the outdoor thermometers are. Also you can purchase a wetbulb thermometer over at the pet supplies for fish aquariums. I use one of those as well.

    I just set some eggs yesterday, too.

    Silkies and Black Copper Marans.

    Looks like we'll be hatching buddies. [​IMG]
