Does any one else have a problem with their thermometor.
We have 3 incubators with 3 different thermometors in them.
If you switch the trermometors around we get differnt temp readings. They are up to 3 degrees off with each one.

I've done that also and a digital thermometer which is an alltogether different reading.

What does everyone use instead of these that come with the bator?

Although I haven't used it yet, the #3018 Thermometer/Hygrometer from GQF Mfg. comes HIGHLY PRAISED. If I recall correctly, the price is $21.50 plus shipping.

Everyone has said that it is VERY ACCURATE!

We presummed that they came accurate and lost our first quail aggs becauce the temp was only 95 when it was reading 99.5 . I think it will be worth the extra $ to have a better guage of temp
thank you for the info

THIS is the thermometer/Hygrometer that I was referring to:

It is NOT the thermometer that is furnished with the Hovabator, but IS, I believe, the thermometer furnished with the cabinet models.
