    Looking for a hygrometer because the therm/hygro I have has a probe and measures the outside air and not the inside the incubator air >.> Looking for a good one that wont steer me wrong [​IMG] Thanks

    Just buy a simple digital indoor/outdoor therm that also tells the humidity level. It a good one at Lowes for under $20. saladin

    My local pet shop has some decent ones in the reptiles section. I think mine is Flukers?

    I have the Flukers one you can get at pet stores. The thermometer was good the first few hatches, but now it is off by 2-15 degrees! The hygrometer is still good. I just checked the calibration and it was right.

    The one I bought from Lowes (indoor/outdoor) regular digital thermometer/humidy I've been using for 2 years now. I hatch from Oct to June setting eggs every 7 to 10 days: I'd say it was a pretty good buy. saladin

    I bumped up the thread on how to check your calibration.

    mudd,
    I don't even remember; I'm at work and not at home.

    Any indoor/outdoor digital them. will work: buy the cheap one.
