    i was thinking about wiring a thermostat into my incubator it holds about 10,000 eggs but what i was thinking is if i could wire a furnace thermostat to a wafter thermostat so when the temp got to low it would kick in the wafter to heat it up them when the furnace thermostat reach temp it shut it off and so forth keeping the varience of degree to a very minimum...........is it possible or am i just dreaming? i want to make this work but i dont know if the wiring the furnace thermostat to a wafer thermostat would hold the temperature to where it needs to be and kick in and out with a maybe 2 degree change........ help would be great thank you..
