    Using a still air little giant. There's nothing like installed on it. Do I need to install one?

    You'll need a calibrated thermometer (I recommend two) and a hygrometer to place inside the incubator.

    Do you mean wafer thermostat? If so, then no you don't need one Little Giants have electronic thermostats or digital on the newer ones. Yes you will need an accurate thermometer.
