debbie, i'm guessing that your thermometer may be faulty, or the tip isn't inserted into the correct place in the bird, giving a false reading. also, you may be cooking it at too high a temp, causing the outside to be over cooked before the center is done. if you slice into a cooked chicken, there should be juices, but they should run pretty clear. the joints may still be a little bit pink, which would be ok to eat, but not pink juices.
