    Okay, so I hatched some quail, and the best brooder thermometer that I have ever seen is this: An infrared thermometer where you point it with a laser pointer, then it tells you the exact temperature, plus/minus .1 of a degree.

    Now, whenever I see them hanging out other than other the heat bulb, I point it at their feet, and adjust the light acccordingly. It's an instantaneous thermometer!

    It is the best, no joke!

    PS. You can get one for about 20.00 at geeks.com

    i've got one of those and they're pretty fantastic, but they only tell the surface temp, so not good for incubators! [​IMG]

    You could use a little bowl of water, like half a wiggler! [​IMG]
