    Not sure what the normal temp is, although I believe they run a much higher temp...I have given injured/sick chickens baby Tylenol and have never had any problems--I give 1/2 tsp every 4-6 hours...hope someone else can help!!!

    Birds don't run fevers. However, they can get overheated.

    Incidentally 105 is a normal internal body temperature for a bird. Do not medicate!
