    LOL I am just curious how long before an accurate reading is found inside the water wiggler. I tried searching but didn't see this mentioned anywhere.

    Should be ready by 24 hours or less. I've never measured the time exactly. Takes as long as it takes the internal egg temps to rise to your set temp.

    Thank you! It seems to be evening out - which should mean it is "up to temp" LOL

  4. I timed mine and it was up to temp within 2-3 hours. My air temp in the bator may go from 96 - 102 but the wiggler temp stays between 98-100.
