    Has anyone set up a camera to monitor their nest?
    If so, what is the best setup?

    I did before, when they were chicks. I used cardboard so i just cut a hole in the side, stuck the lens through (out of pecking range of course0, then just hooked it up to my computer. I used a webcam. Pretty cool to watch them without disturbing them.
  3. I had a camera in the coop for a while. Pretty useless IMO, Unless....you have an egg eater, chics, a bully, or they keep disappearing.
