    Look around the other thermometers, near/around hardware. I found mine on one of the side racks on the end cap. $6.00 or so before tax.

    I found mine in with the thermometers. It's a digital thermometer with humidity gauge. Around $7. I've seen the exact same one on ebay going for $15-$20. Takes a AAA battery. Works great.[​IMG]

    look where they have thermometers..

    I have a digital therm/hydrometer made by SPRINGFIELD.

    I just did the saline test on it and it is perfect.. I used it most of last summer and it worked fine, but I was not really sure about it..

    It is about 1 1/2" high x 2" wide and light enough to set right on top of he eggs..

    It has a leg on the back so that it will stand up on a flat surface, also.​

    Thanks everyonw. I found one at a hardewear store that is closer to me then Wallie World is. I have had it in the incubator for about an hour now and it reads 100 degreese and 60% humitity. Now I just have to figure out what the humity should be. [​IMG]

    You can also go to a pet shop and look in the reptile section. They sell them there usually. Because reptiles, you have to keep track of the humidity in their cage.. I picked one up there for $8.
