    What is the best thermometer hydrometer to use in an incubator? I've read many posts about getting them at WalMart but I can never find anything when I go to WalMart. I need to get one that is accurate and easy to read through the window in the bator.

    I have found the GQF dial one to be the best so far. However, I also use Taylor digital and Accurite digitals with much success. Flukers is another good one that is often used in this type of environment for reptiles. You can get those at a pet store.

    The one I use is flukers combo thermometer/hygrometer. You can get one at petco or petsmart for about $20.

    I use an acu-rite that I got at Wal-mart. It does both the indoor and outdoor temp and humidity and has a wireless sensor for outdoor readings. I place the outdoor sensor in the incubator and have the display on my desk. This way I don't have to look in the incubator to check the temp or humidity, just glance at the display. Works great. The display even lights up so you can check it in the dark.
