The upgrade was originally suggested by the Vasalini (of Vasalini's chickens fame) and took place on 12/03/06 The new camera provides a much clearer picture, and the new images are extremely high quality.
Keep an eye on the blog and the forum for pics, movies and info on their journey to adult hen-hood!
about the cam: Hopefully you can see Leslie (the very large Lemon Pyle Brahma), Mabel (the small Millefleur Pekin), Maude (the small Lavender Pekin), Renee (the Silver Appenzeller Spitzhauben), Erika (the Gold Appenzeller Spitzhauben) and finally Ariel (the Amber Star hybrid).
Unfortunately, as it was an indoor camera, it started playing up after a few weeks outside - I couldn't really complain as it had been out in wind rain and snow!With the help of my wonderful new henpals I was able to purchase a whole new cam system - a proper outdoor CCD camera which was even submersible in water!Thanks to Exa Networks for the help & support on keeping this site going!If the hencam window stays black, please be patient, then refresh the page and try again (it might take a minute to start). What could be better than a webcam pointing at chickens?
Even MORE webcams which MOVE pointing at chickens of course!
We hope you enjoy our even better big-brother style coverage of the hens!
