    Hi I am just giving my bator a first time trial run, it seems to be holding temp steady at 99.5 on one therm and 100 to 101 on the other therm but these are the miller therms that came with my incubator and egg turner. Do you think these therms are junk to and if they are what is good name therm to get? I am running my bator in a room that holds a steady temp of about 60 its the only room in my house that doesn't fluctuate temp and it holds a steady humidty of 55. I also would like some info on a decent name hygrometer any help here greatly appreciated! [​IMG]

    Thermometers vary. Mine were 4 degrees different! I got one from Petco in the reptile section they have a good hygrometer too. It is the one I'm using but your thermometers are so close I'd go with them myself! Us something in between and keep it there.

    I am now testing all my household thermometers on my dining room table, I figure I can calibrate the 4 of with each other .
