What is the Normal Temperature of a Chicken?

post #1 of 6

I'm confused... I spoke with two different avian vets, one said that 105-107 was normal, the other said 102-104 was normal. Any thoughts/comments?

In the mornings after eating, chickens temps are 107. If a chicken doesnt feed the first day, it drops down 106-105. Then 2 days without eating...103.

Interesting... The chicken in my other post has a rectal temp of 107.8 and I don't think that she's eaten for a couple of days.

Did you let the vets know about the 107.8 and not eating? If so, what did they say?

I spoke to them before I found this bird, so I need to call them back.

Ok, let us know what you find out when you get the chance as well as any other info either might have to say. Thanks!
