Anyone have an idea on a electronic thermometer (temp guage) in the coup?

    My coop is 4'x4'x4' with 5 hens. We started this spring with 5 little chicks. So far I've made an automatic coop door, an automatic feeder and an automatic waterer. I also installed 2 wifi web cams that I can watch from a computer or phone.

    I'm thinking about winter coming up and am curious about maybe installing a thermometer. I'd love one that either I could see via my webcam (But I doubt the resolution of the cam would work), or one that somehow I could electronically monitor via my phone or computer. I'm cheap, so I don't want to spend much.

    Anyone have one in your coup or have any suggestions on this? This winter I'm going to be curious how cold the coup gets in the middle of the night here in Michigan.
