Question Incubation Temps

I was just wondering where you should take the temperature for your eggs? (For example: do you read the temp of the vermiculite)

you should usually measure air temp, but if its a bottom - water incubator check the temp at the bottom and average them,

I have a little giant incubator and it comes with a thermometer to read the air temp. If the air temp is 84, then everything inside the incubator should be at the same temp.

so if the temp of the vermiculite is 84F and the air is 90F should i raise or lower the temp if im incubating bearded dragon eggs. (I'm using a hova-Bator)

Now I also know that when it comes time for me to use an incubator then I will use the air temp. as the way to go.

Thanks Burmies

Why the air temp and not the temp of the Vermiculite??? the air temp will always be hotter then the subrate tht ur eggs are on.

thats why... if you try and get the surface temp to 90F, say, then imagine how hot the air will be! You'll cook the eggs for sure.

....

Its the air temp that you want.

And if it means that much to you what the actual temperature of the eggs are, buy a temp-gun (Raytek) and get the temp of the egg. No more guessing and no more needless fretting.
