    The best price I have found is Sunny Creek Farm and hatchery. If you google that his site will come up. He takes call seven days a week. His are 62.00 dollars. Others can be as much as 79. I think it is a wise choice. I am assuming it is for a cabinet of some kind? Will not fit a hovabator

    OOPS, I would still call the guy at Sunny Creek he will know what you need and runs a very low cost operation. I have not seen his prices bested by anyone.

    Good luck

    a reptile supplier. i got on for 176 dollars Aus but it only goes to 95F but if you have the probe lower than the eggs then you can calibrate it to get to the right temp near the eggs thats what ive done
    this is the one i have and u just plug the heat scorce into it no wiring required

    I have one in mine homemade bator, very accurate and sensitive.

    $25.00, perhaps you can find it cheaper.

    Has a probe, which is great you canplace the probe in any spot you want, the whole thermostat outside the bator.

    Also will control up to 500W of load, meaning you can control a bator of double size of regulal cabinet bator!

    Sorry $26.95
