    I started my eggs incubating 3 days ago but I don't have a hygrometer and I am having a hard time finding one in a store. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what stores I should be looking in? Also what are some good brands? The eggs are doing well and I saw something going on inside.

    Wal-Mart is probably the easiest place to find them. They seem to be everywhere. Normally in their Outdoor Depart.
    Because you should calibrate them, brand isn't important

    You can also go to the reptile department of any pet store and find one. I bought one on Amazon.com.

    I had one included free with my purchase from Incubator Warehouse. It's been working fine. Thought the high humidity in the last hatch broke it, but turns out it was just a dead battery and it's still fine I've had this one almost two years?

    I also found one years ago at Lowe's but it did not last long. It was also about $15 there.
