How fun is this? The Chickencam is up and running!
One of the extraordinarily talented producers at my day job came up with the idea to install a camera in my chicken coop so we can check in on our birds anytime of day or night. Christian did some research. I ordered a camera, and voila! Chickencam is born. Er, hatched.
The camera is mounted in an upper corner of the coop so you can see the ladies when they are most active.
Of course, that’s when they are eating and drinking.
Technology never fails to amaze me. This sturdy little camera can sit outside all year long and transmits images via wireless Internet into my home and out to the world. You can see Roz, MaryAnne and Susie Q in action by visiting the Web site “Elizabeth’s Chickens” and we’re working on placing the video stream directly onto Home to Homestead. And if you don’t see the flock, it’s probably because it’s cold and they are cozied up inside their coop!
