    I read how Miss Prissy made her incubator. One of the things she used is a water wiggler. What is it? What incubator function does it perform? Does anyone know where I can get one? [​IMG]

    I think it would be great if someone with a wiggler would post a pic of it.

    Thanks.. So if you use one of these you do not need to add water? Or is this used just to check temperatures?

    Ok. I understand what it is and what it does. I'm waiting on an answer for your question, though, Dilly. [​IMG]

    You stick a sensor from a thermometer into it (I just used a regular digital baby thermometer... but I have to actually push the button to get a reading.. the sensors would have been nice [​IMG] ) and it gives you an idea of the internal temp of the eggs, since they are liquid inside.
