    so here it goes. i'm getting my homemade incubator ready for some new eggs to hatch and here's the problem i have the probe in the water wiggler thing and it reads around 98.? ok and the temps in the incubator at that temp read 100 to 102. so if i increase the temp so the water wiggler probe thing reads 99.whatever, the incubator temps read anywhere from 101 to 105or6. so what would be better ? and its been running for days and the water wiggler thing doesn't come up to temp like the rest of the incubator. not sure why? any ideas?

    i would personaly go on air temp, water wiglers take time to respond to temp change, if you keep the air temp steady then the egg temp will be steady at the same temp (eventualy)
