    my husband made me get a digital thermostat (reptile type) because I *spend too much in eggs to cook them* [​IMG]
    I got it installed. I do have one question though. Should I put the sensor *IN* a water wiggler. I made a homemade wiggler because the heat was constantly on and off, now it maintains temp in the water wiggler pretty consistant BUT my regular thermometer says it gets down to 97 and sometimes as high as 102. The water wiggler is more of the temp inside the eggs right? I never used one before but want to use this new thermostat most effectively. Thanks for any help [​IMG]

    The thermostat probe needs to be in open air. Puting it in the water wiggler would make it cycle to slow. Use that for your thermometer only
