    I stuck one of those digital kids thermometers in mine. Whenever I turn my eggs, I just give it a push to double check temps inside the eggs [​IMG]

    There's a way to make something similar with plastic bags full of water.

    I got mine at Dollar Tree... they always seem to have them as soon as Spring/Summer hits.

    Yes I know what you all are talking about when asking for a Water Wiggler. I went to Walmart (hate going there) looked in the toys till I was blue in the face. Then ask a clerk, yep I knew I going to get that stupid question look! [​IMG] No they dont have any!! [​IMG] Came back home and made one of Play-Doh and baggie. Works fine I added a bit of water too.
