    Ok so I havent been able to find a waterwiggler so I have been useing the idea someone put up about useing a ziplock bag and filling it part way with water and such. Here is my problem they work fine for 24-36 hours and then they spring leaks . [​IMG]
    I am worried that they will get the eggs wet or cause to much humidity when they start leaking if I dont catch it right away. Any ideas on what I can use that will work just as well.[​IMG]

    I don't even use a water wiggler anymore. I hatched a long time without one and then decided to give them a try to see if I thought it made any difference....I didn't find that it helped one way or another so I quit even putting one in.

    I would think that a large balloon would work and not leak like the ziplock... just fold it around the temp probe and maybe secure with rubber bands?... anyway just an idea!
