    Hey everyone the digital thermometer in my hovabator says 97 degrees right now. Is that too low? Should I change it? It used to say 99 degrees but it has been off for a few days and I turned it back on a few hours ago. Does it just need time to warm up?

    It should be 99.5 if its been of for a while it might just need time to warm up again [​IMG]

    If you turned it on less than an hour ago, then it's still warming up. If you turned it on more than an hour ago, it's probably done and the temp should be raised a little.
