    Hello Everyone!!!! Im having a lot of low temp issues with my hatches. I finally got the humidity issue figured out but eggs are still hatching really late and the hatch rate is super low. Im losing a lot of chicks and its breaking my heart. I want to know if anyone can advise me to the best kind of temp and humidity guage that I can put inside my incubator to help better control my temperature. Thanks in Advance to anyone that can help.

    I used the digital type that you can buy at Walmart. It has temp on one side and humidity on the other. Works with one triple-A battery. I have used them for years.

    I use a Brinsea Spot Check, its incredibly accurate. For humidity, I just have 2 super cheap thermometer/hygrometer combos I got from TSC. I also have a digital therm/hygro I got from Walmart. The temp part is WAY off, but the hygro is pretty close to being accurate (-2%).

    Good luck!

    I have exactly the same experience as you. Brinsea spot check very accurate. Wal-mart digital not so much on the temperature side.
