    I have now, three differentthermometers inMy bator and all readings are different. Mostly it's the humidity reading in question. The digital readout says 58 the non digital says 80. Big difference. I don't know which is correct. Does anyone have any ideas?

    This is going to sound snarky, but it's not. Get a third and see which of the other two it matches. Then you'll know.

    What sort of digital one are you using? A digital hygrometer?

    Good Idea, Thanks. They both read temp and humidity. The digital is a Bemis. The non-digital is Taylor. They have evened out a bit now. Now the digital temp is 99.9 Humisity 66 and non-digital says 98 and 64.5
