    [​IMG] I have one of these its a POS - IMO [​IMG]

    I have 4 thermometers and hydrometers and they all read different.

    I think this one will give me a more accurate temp.

    I am working with a old man who's been hatching for over 40 years, this is what he is using and recommends.

    <sigh>

    I am hoping it will help me get better hatch rates.

    And practicing the dry incubation method. Simi dry.


    Anyway if anyone know where one may be cheaper.
    Thanks

    I am sorry, where can I find info on the "flukers"?
    i have never heard of those before.

    I am just trying to find the BEST thermometer for my incubators. I think the only one I have that reads the best is the one that came with my LG.

    The ones that came with my sportsman I dont trust and I dont trust the 3 digital ones I got from Walmart

    Thank you again

    I use a Brinsea spot check inside a water weasel. I also have a flukers in both the bator and the hatcher. I'm happy with mine, and got mine off of ebay for half the price of a new one from petsmart. [​IMG]
