Weighing hatching eggs

    I would like to monitor the humidity/air sac growth by the weight method. The only scales I've found that read in grams (kitchen and postage scales) only read in 1 gram increments. I'm pretty sure folks must use scales that read to a more detailed point. Can anyone who is doing this successfully recommend a particular scale that they've found does the job for them?

    Hi Beesong,
    I would check out Amazon.com.
    I bought a digital kitchen scale that weighs in ounces and grams.
    Check it out,

    Quote:Carolyn, does yours read in 1 gram increments or smaller ones (like 1/10 gram)?
