    I'm bringing this out of the filing cabinet as I thought it was a great link. You can find some pretty interesting stuff in the "unanswered posts" section.

    I can definately use that. Thank you. I do have a question. I'm not up on the "Lingo" . What is wet bulb and dry bulb mean? Probably a stupid question. I could use an intelligent answer.

    "What is wet bulb, dry bulb?"

    Using two thermometers you can accurately measure both the temperature and relative humidity in your incubator. You use the first thermometer to measure the temperature (dry bulb) and to the second you attach a wet wick (wet bulb). If the dry bulb is say 100 degrees and the wet bulb is 84 degrees you have a humidity of about 51%. You can calculate the relative humidity or look it up on a chart. My lyon incubator uses this method. (and provides a chart)
