Use two types of thermometers.

Two types of thermometers that are good to have when owning chickens are the long-stemmed compost thermometer and a regular outdoor thermometer for measuring the internal coop temperature.

You can find compost thermometers for sale on the Internet. They have a temperature dial on top of a long heat-sensitive stem that’s usually 19 inches in length. Compost thermometers typically cost between $25 and $35. Gardener’s Supply carries compost thermometers.

Place a small thermometer inside your chicken coop as another beneficial tool to help you manage your chickens. A thermometer comes in handy to keep you abreast of the temperatures your chickens are experiencing. The more comfortable you can keep your chickens, the healthier and happier they will be.
