    I just got an LG Still Air bator. I'm getting it prepped before I add the eggs. I have a basic plastic Acurite thermometer in it and a digital Acurite thermometer. The digital is saying that the temps is 99 with 62% humidity while the plastic is saying 101 with an 80% humidity. Which one should I trust?

    Thanks, Sonja

    First how do you calibrate the dig for humidity? I've been playing around with things this AM. The plastic is at 100 w/ 50% humidty and the dig is at 95 w/ 45%. [​IMG] Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
