What thermometer works best for the water wiggler?
Hi, if you can get ahold of an old mercury thermometer.those work great......I found one similar at a local feed store.........it had paper on it but i just rolled the paper in a little and it is working great.............my first hatch I used a meat thermometer it worked fine....... just watch out for the pointy end not to break the wiggler
Awesome! I got these great meat thermometers, but I wasn't sure they would work!
Quote:It did work for me........ but look around still for a regular one......the do make them like the old mecury ones.just hard to find , at least it was for me.....good luck
Ok! I have a hard time reading the old ones, but I'll see if I can swipe some from my MIL
THE WIGGLER WILL SQUIRT THE THERM. OUT!! I LOST AN EGG THAT WAY!
I left the lid up on my incubator when I was trying to situate the wiggler, and it shot the therm. out! Fell on a 'good' egg....
Quote:SO true.....so be careful when you place it in there........thanks parsonswife for reminding us of that !
Thanks for warning me!
