    Anyone else as obsessed as I am?

    I found a wireless network camera on ebay cheap (cheap LOL!) and have it mounted in a corner of the coop. We watched 3 eggs being laid this morning. I think I want one for the run now!

    That sounds like fun! Also nice to be able to check up on them from the house. I run out to check on them several times a day just to make sure they are OK and have everything they need. Of course I have only had my babies for 3 months now and have to gain some confidence that they will be ok now that they are not on my kitchen table!
    How much does a new set up generally cost? I would also look for one on Craigs list or ebay but I have no idea what a good deal is.

    Bear in mind that you will eat up a lot of bandwidth and possibly slow down your access to BYC.....
