    Just ordered some dropcams to use as my chicken cam! Soon I'll be able to view my chickens anywhere! Anyone else have live chicken cams to view that they can share? They get addicting!

    I'd love to know more about the equipment you're using. I've been thinking about setting up a webcam for my girls so that I can watch them while at work, and several friends have voiced interest in watching--there are few things more relaxing than watching chickens![​IMG]

    I've been looking for something weather-proof (I'd like to mount it in the run and/or inside the coop, overlooking the nest boxes) and something that doesn't produce too choppy a feed. However, the cost can be pretty high for a quality camera.

    I'll post the results when I get it. I just saw some news about dropcam and sounded just like what i wanted so I got some. Got several, will probably send some away.
