    Lowe's, home depot, walmart all have the cheap stick on ones. For around 10-15 you can get a nice digital temp/humidity one.

    I picked up one of those indoor/outdoor gauges from Lowes. It has a receiver in the kitchen that tells me the inside temps hi and low plus humidity in the coop as well as the my home's inside tem and humidity. I cost $28. It's a great tool.

    I just now copied the following from a post that I replied to a few months ago. I have two Vicks thermometer/hygrometers now, and I wouldnÂ’t trust anything else.
    *******************************************************
    I tried EVERYTHING that Walmart and all the pet stores in the area sold. I ended up taking them all back; basically, they were all junk. Then a buddy, just to shut up my complaining, gave me a Vicks like the one sold in the ad below. The temperature is always right on, and after the salt/water test, I know that the humidity is 2% off. I really like it. Vicks V70 HealthCheck Hygrometer:

    I have two Genesis 1533's, and when I am incubating, the first 18 days I do not use the wire bottom under the egg turner. I only use the wire for the last three days. So, the first 18 days it sits nicely on the outside edge of the egg turner near the turner's motor. The last 18 days it just sits along with the eggs in cartons on the rubber mat that covers the wire.
