  1. thermometer probe in hallow egg full of water in the incubater . is that a good idea or should i just set the probe right on top of the incubating eggs
  2. I put a probe in a small jar of water. It's one of those little jars that pimentos come in, I poked a hole in the lid and the probe sits in that hole. Works really well, and it's washable.

    I think the water would evaporate out threw the pores. I would use oil or something like it.

    Yes I know thingee isn't right word but I can't spell or think right now.
