    Okay I just checked with Walmart and they have three.
    small cheapie @ $6.47
    Medium $19.97
    Large $27.77

    So question is for hatching, which would you recommend. All were supposed to be digital.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry no one has helped U! You didn't mention the brand? Accurite I think is what walmart has I think. I use medical type thermometer. If U need one soon then go with medium priced one and compare the temps with another. Heck, take your temp with a medical one then take your temp with the one U buy.

    Quote:No, you dont need a hydrometer! [​IMG] Hydrometers measure the specific gravity of liquids (density) You will need a Hygrometer, that measures the relative humidity of air. U can find them in combos with a thermometer. Just remember the "d" in hydrometer measures density ie gravity. [​IMG]

    Quote:Nope. None.
    You should get two now and do the salt test on them to see how accurate they are.
