    I was just wondering which you all using.
    I got me a thermo/hygrometer combo from Accurite.It cost like 12$ at Walmart. It has a corded probe that i hung into the bator, just above the eggs. But i also put the thermometer that came with the bator in too.
    Should i use a seperate hygrometer or are those combo thingys fine??

    I use a springfield. Used it for both hatches. I just taped mine to the top of the bator and put the probe in storage

    I am a *thermometer slut*

    I have an Amprobe THWD-2 Psychrometer. This is hightly accurate and consequently expensive. It is very good for checking everything else.

    I have a Springfield Temp/RH meter (Walmart $6) which is decent and sits in the incubator.

    Various other In/Out thermometers, and I calibrate them all with digital medical thermometers (2, and cheap but very accurate in the range we need).

    Where do you find them at walmart. I've looked in the pet and the garden section and still I can't find one. Are they in the cooking section?
