    I was just kidding about the reading on the side of the thermometer. I was just trying to generate a few laughs. We had it in the brooder over night to test the temperature and when I slid it back into the sleeve I got a big kick out of the temperatures on the side. Anywho..... here are our new chicks. We ended up getting 2 Buff Orps, 2 Ameraucanas, and 2 Welsummers.
