    Hello I have a Farmers Innovation 4200 with fan and auto turner. The humditity reads 70% while the digital hydrometer is only reading 34%. I am so confused as to what to go by. I am at day 3. Any help would be so appreciated. Temps are holding good :) I have 3 reading temps and all are between 99.0 and 99.8.

    i am having similar wide-range variances on humidity on ours & have basically the same question - will hopefully be setting our eggs tomorrow. Good luck on your hatch

    i set 21 tonite @ 6pm - going to put my faith more on the digital than the dial on the lid - alot of the reviews i had read have been negative of the lack of accuracy of the dial. Hopefully will have some fuzzies in 3 weeks

    The built in ones are not very reliable. You can calibrate or use more than one digital and see if they all read the same thing (or close). I have the same incubator, my digital reads 35 and my built in reads 50. I just ignore the built in ones and go with my digital. Chances are your digital is more accurate.

    Good luck to you [​IMG]
