    I love. The guinea. Always curious![​IMG]

    you should put it outside with them. They will do so much fun silly chicken things. I can't wait to see more of your babies [​IMG]
    also with the flash i don't know what to tell you my DH sets it up for me [​IMG] maybe something in the instructions could help you troubleshoot?

    My son had that cam we had the same problem. He took it back. I had some others & everybody has their favorites. The one that is easiest to use & dependable is Moultrie I45 Gamespy digital camera. They all eventually quit working just a matter of time.

    I replaced it with a Bushnell one that has worked beautifully thus far.

    Is the camera positioned to see things coming into the coop? All I saw in the OP were pictures of birds --- though I understand that happens, LOL I have a thread dedicated to my game cam pictures! [​IMG] I couldn't see the dirt that was mentioned
