    Today is Day 20 for our dedicated broody, she's done a fantastic job. I couldn't help but satisfy my curiousity on just how warm it might be underneath her![​IMG]

    I think you should put more than one as to verify the correct temp. LOL

    If she was a turkey I would be making Thanksgiving statements lol
