    Google told me that a fever thermometer will read too high in an incubator. If I put the same fever thermometer inside a water wiggler, can I then trust that accuracy?

    I snapped my regular thermometer saturday night, and until later today, a digital fever "under the tongue" thermometer is all I have access to

    My suggestion to you is if you can got to petco or petsmart and get yourself a digital thermometer w/ a probe on it. I think they are in the reptile section. You then put the probe in the center of the water wiggler. Nice thing about this is the digital part of the thermometer that you read remains outside the incubator. Not sure if this is much help.
