    How do most people here measure the humidity in their bator?

    With one of my incubators, I have a wet bulb thermometer inside the incubator. The wick of the thermometer rests in the water at the bottom of the incubator, and reads out the wet bulb temperature. I have a chart that shows the humidity level at different wet bulb and dry bulb thermometer temperatures, so I just check that to figure out the humidity level.

    In my other, smaller incubator, there isn't room for a wet-bulb thermometer. With it, I don't really measure the humidity, I just put in a certain amount of water and hope it is the right amount.

    Any cheap hygrometer from the pet shop (reptile goods) is adequate.

    Cheers
