I'm confused... I spoke with two different avian vets, one said that 105-107 was normal, the other said 102-104 was normal. Any thoughts/comments?

In the mornings after eating, chickens temps are 107. If a chicken doesnt feed the first day, it drops down 106-105. Then 2 days without eating...103.
Interesting... The chicken in my other post has a rectal temp of 107.8 and I don't think that she's eaten for a couple of days.
