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

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, 3 roos, 7 hens. Also 1 drake, a fat bearded dragon and 2 angora rabbits + eggs in the incubator.

 

Current projects are Cinnamon Legbars, Pinecomb chickens, brown pigeons and silver coturnix quail.
