    Does anyone else here have a coop cam? A lot of my friends think I have gone off the deep end but I think it has it's advantages.

    Don't feel bad... I have one too. My family thinks I'm crazy, but I notice them watching the screen also when I check up on the chickies. [​IMG]

    I WISH!! Actually, I set up our video cam to catch an egg eater. Hoping to find the culprit tomorrow since today was a bust.

    No but I want one! OMG that video is so funny! It's like she knows she's being watched! I've had that feeling before, you keep stopping and thinking something's not quite right here...

    I want one but probably wouldn't be able to. What's involved? Do you have to run wire out there for it? Or does it go through the wifi? Our coop is so far from the house it wouldn't be possible to run wire out.

    Quote:Mine is wired but you can get wireless... although they cost a little more. I got my cam real cheap on sale and I already had a long USB cable. Our coop is right under my bedroom window so not a big deal there. Just something I did on a whim but I like it. It takes still photos or videos controled from the computer. If you go wireless, make sure you know the range and how many walls the signal must penetrate.

    That video cracked me up! I wish it would have gone a little longer and recorded the moment of truth when she lays [​IMG]. I keep reading about the squawking they make when an egg is laid but I'm still a noob, my hens aren't quite laying yet...soon!
