Hi all,

 

Just a thought, but since, as a community we used both Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales, i feel that it may be useful to have a conversion chart / app on BYC so that members that are unfamiliar with one scale can readily translate into a scale that they are most comfortable with. 

 

I would have thought that members that post on issues relating to incubators may find it useful, but also generally. I know that i sometimes have to use a temperature conversion site.

 

Either ways, its not a Eureka idea, just a suggestion that I hope may help us communicate more effectively. 

 

Nifty chick suggested i post the idea here to test the waters on the idea.

 

Thanks

It would help me big_smile.png Does not take a lot to get me confused.com when it comes to the temp conversion!! I do know for the incubators 37.5C is 99.5F and that's about it.

Good idea Chris! I would use one if it was right here handy and I didn't have to leave BYC to find a chart. :)

I think that would be very useful (for me). I also only know the 37.5C = 99.5F but that's all I can remember.

17 pigeons, 15 coturnix quail, 2 roos, 6 hens. Also 5 drakes, a CCL roo that thinks he's a drake, a fat bearded dragon and 2 angora rabbits.

 

Current projects are Cinnamon Legbars (chocolate gold), chocolate/brown pigeons and silver/brown coturnix quail. My next project is a dark chocolate colored chicken with deep red/gold base that lays bright green eggs. Yes, I like the color brown.
