    Does anyone have a temp and humidity sensor that records your data and send it to an app? If you do, do you think its worth it? Which one do you have? I would really like one that can give me warnings too if my incubator gets to hot or cold. I have found a couple on Amazon but the price is a little steep right now and the cheaper has some pretty bad reviews. I would rather hear from you all and see what you all have to say :) I currently have 12 Blue Andalusia eggs set and we are only on day 3. I have 3 thermometers in there with them but one keeps giving me a little bit of a high reading for a few mins. It hasn't stayed high but I'm scared it will and if I'm not around to see it I'm scared it will effect my little egglets :(

    As long as it doesn't stay hot for a long time then you shouldn't have any problems. I do not know of any app, but you probably don't need to monitor it that close IMO. The max heat and humidity for like 4 hours (I think) should be stored in most regular digital thermometers. If you check the temps regularly for a day before you put the eggs in and it only reads a couple degrees high once or twice a day then leave it be. Remember also that even if the air right below the heat source is 105 degrees, the egg almost certainly is not that hot yet (assuming your thermostat is functioning properly and returns to normal temperature).

    It's never gotten that high. The highest it's been is 102. It will get that high for a few mins and then drop back down. I'm just perfection and want to make sure my little egglets have the best chance of survival.
