    I mean I looked on ebay and there are some that look like a thermometer on there.
    I don't have alot of space in my Brinsea to put anything extra that is big if it is full of eggs.
    Will that type work?

    Does anyone know? Also my house humidity is 48 percent and I can't lower that. Anyone hatch at that humidity for day 1-18?
