Hi I bought my 1st incubator. and an egg turner, both came with thermometers,originally I was planning on making an incubator, so I bought a digital thermometer with outdoor humidity. Testing now I have 4 different reading should I calibrate the one's that came with it to the digital ? Should the digital be acurate?should I use all four or just the digital with the humidity?

No, calibrate them to actual temp. Then see how close your digital is to it, it should be VERY close. Eg- your digital is a degree cooler after the other thermometer is calibrated and both have been in the bator for a couple hours. Then that gives you the ability to use the hi/lo record on the digital to see if you are getting any great variations in the temps in the bator.
