    Oh dear. First hatches are nerve wracking. Just pay it on top of the eggs. Mine flail all over the bator while they turn. No problem.

    My husband and i built our bater, we have the ones ( gauges ) that you just get from a pet store lol. Since our bater is styrofoam we cut holes at egg level and glued them to the outside, and so far they seem to be working awsome.

    I keep my gauge at the back of the incubator where I can see it better.
