    I am just getting ready to place my test eggs into my bator and reading about other bators they talk about Water Wigglers! What are they and what are they used for??
    Thanks

    Water wigglers are used to simulate an egg. You get a Brinsea Spot Check with the probe and put it in the wiggler and set the wiggler at the same height as the eggs. The spot check will tell you approximately the inside temp of the egg. Finding the wigglers can be a task. It took me a month and six stores before I found them. I found them at a place called Deals! Other people have found them in Walmart or Dollar General. They are usually around a dollar.

    I have 3 of them in my incubator and use them with a thermometer/hygrometer that has a probe. Very accurate readings! Can get them at any dollar store..ebay....the tricky part is getting the probe to stay in the water wiggler lol
