    I loved how some people had web cams in their incubators when they were hatching, and I thought since my babies aren't due for a couple more weeks I would put it in with my broody hen. Here she is in all her glory...

    Nope, no action but there will be in 2 weeks. Do you have her in a cage in the house? My broody is due to hatch her little ones this weekend. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah, she's in a rabbit cage in my bedroom. I had another broody outside, but she decieded to go broody where I couldn't reach her or the eggs and unfortunately a coyote got her, so when this girl went broody I'd figure I'd give her special attention [​IMG]

    the cam is kinda pointing more toward the water bottle than her (wow, you are so nice to share with us and I'm giving you production directions!). just would like to see more of her [​IMG]

    did you say this is a rabbit pen? I bought a used chain link dog kennel to put broodies in but am not happy with my house set up. I put a cat litter pan in there for the hen and eggs. today one had hatched and I found the chick outside the pan on the ground outside the coop! I think I've saved it by putting it in the incubator but need a better pen for future broodies.

    I have a wire rabbit cage and it looks nothing like what I see in your pic. er, is it possible to see more of the cage in your cam or you post a pic?

    thanks for posting this (sorry for being bossy about your pointing of it !).
