    Okay I have a Farm Innovator model 4200 I like my I have had four or five hatches in it. I have had about 35% hatch rate from shipped eggs. I do a dry hatch. In other words I do not worry about Humidity untill lock down. I would get a Hydromator and place inside to keep an eye on humidity as well as a second thermometer to keep tabs on temp. The one on the incubator tends to run high.

    I use that one (Farm Innovators Pro 4250) . I have just finished up my second hatch. It holds temperature perfect for me and the temperature reading is actually accurate to about .5 degrees, which is great. The humidity reading isn't dead on but that's okay. I have no complaints with it.
