I took Baby's temp (under her wing) and she was at 115F. I'd be dead if I had that temp...hehe - They're sleeping now but I want to try again with both tommorrow.

Taking a birds temperature rectally should never be done it can do more damage then good.
I agree- it's not a cat, dog or horse...lol so please don't start taking out the KY jelly..under their wing is just fine. Their trunk is the most accurate place.
I took them again for Baby and Ziggy:

Ziggy was at 106.3F
and
Baby was at 105.9F


Normal temp for them is around 5-10 higher then a humans. Mine didn't even budge..they acctually thought it was a toy. The easiest way to take it it to hold them on your chest- one hand give head scritches and the other hold it under their wing.
