    I am looking for something that I can get a better egg temperature, like the water wiggler
    that I have seen in other home bators? Nate

    I'm thinking of a zippy bag with some water inside, then fold over on itself and tape together. Place temp probe in the middle. I'll let you know if it works.

    Mine leaked at the zip-lock seam; perhaps waterproof tape to secure the seal on the baggies.

    I used ziplock bag with water, then another bag over the first, works just fine

    I saw where someone blew out an egg. Closed the small hole with hot glue. Filled the egg with hair gel. Inserted the probe. Sealed with hot glue. Sounded like a great solution!

    I had a problem finding one of these little devils myself.

    I was told they were at Wal-Mart, but could never find them. I finally located them in the party favors section aisle for a buck a piece. For the longest time I thought they should be in the toy section.
