    Hi,
    I need help AsAp!
    LOL!
    Got some eggs I need to move to our tx6 to hatch 2NITE!!!!
    I thought I understood the wet/dry temp (I printed out a conversion chart) now I'm completely lost. [​IMG]

    I added an acurite w/humidity into it and don't know which I should go by?
    I LOVE the ease of use of the acurites, (have two other 1588's and they both hold temp/humidity great- but I only have the acurites in there to so I don't get worried about it being different or second guessing myself)

    HELP!!!!!!
    Thanks a million!

    Chicken 21 99.5 86 18 98.5 90-94


    I want my wet/dry bulb reading 90-94 temp. for the last 3 days?!?! Not 99-100????

    and my wet bulb reading at 98-99?!?!

    Heck I was worried when it was reading 86 wet by the conversion chart I had printed.

    Here is another site if you go half way down the page it will show you the % in humidity to the wet bulb reading. I printed it out and keep it by my bator.
    I don't know anything about the type of bator you have maybe someone else will chime in for you.

    mine is reading dry 100* and 92* wet.
    What humidity is that????

    that is the same chart I have printed out, I'm so CONFUSED!

    The accurite is reading 100* and 57% humidity......

    Thank you for your time Ivy!

    Ok your humidity would be about 72% with a wet reading of 92. If your bator temps are 100*
