Hi guys!

I'm getting ready to try out our incubator (brinsea octagon 20 eco) for the first time and I wanted to make sure the temp is correct. Where should I check the temperature in this particular incubator? The thermometer that comes with it is mounted at the top. Is this the one I should go by or should I place one at egg level? Thanks :)

I would trust the Brinsea one you have in there. They design the incubators so that you get a correct reading from where they have placed the thermometer. All to do with air flow etc. I have the octagon 20 advance and trust it completely never had a bad hatch with it. Good luck with your incubation :fl

I've done a few successful hatches in my Brinsea and I left the thermometer where they placed it. It is fine where it is

Thanks! I ended up checking it with one of my husbands fancy thermometers from his job.. the built in one was spot on with temperature accuracy
