    If it is still air the temp looks good. I keep my humidity around 45-50% the up it the last three days to 65-70%. Seem to work good for me. On day 1/8/07 did it really get to 112 or was that a reading you got of the thermometer? My Flukers does that and the temp doesn't actually get that high.

    I had just cleaned it and while cleaning I might have inadvertently bumped it that high, because as I adjusted down, it seemed to respond to adjustments down and leveled out. I'm taping that sucker next time I clean it! [​IMG]

    It is a still air. The digital thermo/hygro I think is a Flukers. The old analog hygro, which is cracked, that I have in the bator says the humidity is like 65%. I don't know which to believe. But it read like 75% for over a day and I didn't have any condensation.

    When I bought my Flukers it was really accurite and now that it has been threw three hatches it ready for the garbage(as far as temp goes.) I ended up buying a spot check from Brinsea. it is really accurite. I would go with the humidity for the Flukers and get a better termometer. Thats only my opinion though. If the Flukers is new you should be okay for this hatch. Good luck I hope you get a great hatch.

    The flukers went through my first miserable attempt at hatching - before the surge protector. My house needs rewired - I had major temp spikes that were temp spikes, but the surge protector has fixed that problem, except when I mess with the bator.

    Okay - Ill get an other thermo tomorrow for the bator.
