Really? Great new invention called a thermometer. Lol. You should try it. Amazing how well they work. <<eye roll>>

But seriously, there are reptile thermometers that are digital that will give you temp and humidity.

Good luck!

You should have ran your incubator 24 hours BEFORE putting eggs in. You need a thermometer and hygrometer so you know its at 99.5 degress and the correct humidity. Otherwise you are wasting 21 days of electricity for nothing. The whole turning it on for 24 hours is to get it warmed up and adjusted to the proper temp. Incubators do not just set themselves to 99.5 degrees.
Good luck!

This is the one I use but it's not in an incubator. I use it in rooms. I know they work in reptile aquariums.

I was just kidding with you. Just joking around. No meanness or offense intended. Hope your feeling better and back on your feet really soon.

Oh and can you purchase on the Internet? Could ship right to your home, no?
