    i have two digital and one wafer, every one of them reads different so im going to calibrate them all again and write on them the difference so i can keep track better for next hatch. can i calibrate a wafer hygrometer? also, i have read they usually read what theyre going to read after 8 hours, and you dont have to wait the full 24, is that true?

    its a hygrometer i got in the reptile section for the humidity, but its not digital its like the wafer style. i wasnt sure if i could calibrate it the same as a digital with the salt water

    The wet salt works on both. With most of the analog ones there is a adjustment screw in the back so you can move the needle to 75%.
