    Hey all I am in need of a hygrometer and I need to know what kind and where to get one. I have a Little Giant still air incubator if that makes a difference. Thank you for your time

    I used a National Geographic indoor outdoor thermometer and hygrometer, it works great and is guaranteed accuracy of +/- 5% RH and +/- 0.2 degrees Fahrenheit, i got it at Walmart for $20, its a little box shaped one that has a comfort meter as well.

    I incubate in LG forced air units and I have a bunch of tiny little Sunbeam hygrometers that have have alway been reliable within 1 to 2 amounts of humidity readings and i got them on sale of .99 each. Best one's I've found so far.

    The smaller hygrometers/thermometers you can find at a cigar shop. They call them humidors.

    I use an incubator hygrometer with a bulb probe I buy online at incubator warehouse for about 14 dollars. I have several of them and after buying and disgarding several other types I like these the best so far.
