Here's the tractor with the brooder, note the thermostat on the outside let us monitor the temp inside the box. I set it to power on the heat mat at 80°F but even in the 40s the interior temp was above 80. I had the probe inserted into a 4oz. Contanor of water to get a steady temp and to mimic the temp flux of a small bird.
