    We just got our Hovabator and auto egg turner (we are newbies) the instructions state to take the thermometor out of the box then it says to put it directly on the eggs ? We do not see a thermometer ? Is it built into the cover or our we missing it ? Thank you in advance.

    It would be a small thermometer. I would suggest that you want to upgrade to a digital thermometer for better accuracy and durability. The thermometers that come with incubators are very fragile and don't last very well. Welcome to the awesome world of hatching!!! May it be a joyous one for you. Hope this was helpful and Happy Hatching!!!!!!!!! Farmer Nancy

    Thank you farmer Nancy. Fortunately the boss chick is a chef and she has a digital thermometer her that we will use.
