    I just ordered a new incubator and I'd like to get a temp/humidity combo gauge to use with it. Good grief.....there's a bazillion of them for sale on the internet, with prices from ultra cheap to hundreds of dollars and more.

    Does anyone have recommendations for one for use with my incubator? I ordered a "reptipro" incubator with auto turners.

    Links? Advice? I'm all ears (eyes?)[​IMG]

    Quote:I'm using the same [ Springfield brand ] . I find the thermometer reacts slowly to change ; but calibrated the hygrometer before putting it in the 'bator and surprizingly it was dead on at the 75% correct reading according to the instructions I found here at BYC ............. and the hygometer reacts quickly . A little hard to read without interior incubator lights .
