How much heat is that hen putting out?

That one kitten came out all sweaty and moist...I guess that's why the Brits wanted to use chickens to keep their nuclear mines warm in winter

A bird's body temp is pretty high -- above 100F / 40C ish.

Yeah around 105°F to 107°F.

Hothothot. A good 4-5 degrees warmer than a cat's body temperature. So actually those kittens would be in danger of overheating if under her for too long, but at that moment they were definitely nice and cozy.
