    Can you use a digital meat thermometer with the probe to put in the water wiggler. I can not find a regular thermometer with a probe any where. I was wondering if anyone uses meat thermometers???

    does the repitle type have the probe that you can put in the wiggler? I have 2 other digital thermometer/hydrometers that I use but was wanting to try the water wiggler out.

    Mine is a zoo med digital therm with a display and a long cord with a probe the probe I set ontop of my eggs <dont have a wiggler> and the display is resting beside the bator on the table.
    I put the probe in my armpit to take my temp to judge accuracy:plbb and it seemd darn close [​IMG]
    Good luck

    I saw a post on this. Is it the digital one?
    You can get them at Walmart for 12 bucks.
    I took my grandson big plastic egg. Drill a hole in it then I glue it closed with hot glue. Take a syringe and filled it with hair gel and put the probe in the egg. It sames to be workingh for me but I am still at the setting up stage.
